On May 1st in Dover, YWCA Delaware organized a rally, "Stand Against Racism: Beyond the Moment.” The rally, which was endorsed by dozens of nonprofits and grassroots activist groups across Delaware, coincided with YWCA’s annual Stand Against Racism campaign, where affiliates across the country share public pledges to stand against racism and other forms of bias. The event also occurred on May Day and coordinated with hundreds of events across the country with a vision of “a future where all people have safety, sanctuary, and promise.”
From the stage, about 10 speakers voiced powerful messages— advocating for the special needs of women veterans, people with disabilities, and people who are homeless, to criminal justice reform to battling racism and xenophobia. The day was all about solidarity, and coming together to put forward an alternative vision for a future where “freedom, dignity, and justice for all” is the basis for society.
