Stand Against Racism: Beyond the Moment

Stand Against Racism is a signature YWCA campaign 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 year, YWCA Delaware, grassroots activists and community organizations in the State of Delaware are teaming up to Stand Against Racism in solidarity with the national Beyond the Moment movement.

Join us and communities across the country this May Day as we push beyond the moment to a future where ALL people have safety, sanctuary, and promise!
