YWCA Stand Against Racism National Tele-Town Hall
April 23, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Voting rights, census participation, and civic engagement are, and have always been, essential to racial justice. As the COVID-19 pandemic disrupts all aspects of life, it is also exacerbating the impact of systemic and structural racism on communities of color across health, education, justice, and economic sectors. In this moment, our collective efforts to secure full access at the ballot box, to ensure a fair and complete Census count, and to stand against racism—whenever and wherever it happens—are more important than ever.
During YWCA’s annual Stand Against Racism campaign, we are thrilled to be hosting a National Tele-Town Hall with our partners: Black Women’s Roundtable, League of Women Voters, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, National Domestic Workers Alliance, Supermajority, United State of Women, and When We All Vote. Together we will:
- Explore the issues with national leaders in the movement for racial justice and gender equity
- Learn best practices and build skills for effective civic engagement amidst social distancing
- Motivate and inspire our nationwide networks for the work of racial justice
