On Thursday, April 28, YWCA will host "Hear Our Voices," an evening of creative performance in honor of the 2016 Stand Against Racism.

We are seeking poets, storytellers, musicians, comedians, and other artists to perform at the event. Our intention is to shed light on subjects rarely discussed in public settings, creating space and giving permission for people who have often been silenced to tell their own stories.

About the Stand Against Racism

Stand Against Racism is a signature campaign of YWCA USA to build community among those who work for racial justice and to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in our communities. This campaign is one part of our larger national strategy to fulfill our mission of eliminating racism.

This year, our theme is On A Mission for Girls of Color! We will amplify the national discussion about the impacts of institutional and structural racism on the lives of girls of color. In 2015, over 750 locations hosted Stand Against Racism events across 44 states!
