In my post yesterday, I wrote briefly about racism in America. How can Delawareans address the ills of racism? The YWCA in Wilmington asked me to pass along the following information about a program that will help. Thanks, Faye Bonneau, :for guest posting about:
Taking a Stand Against Racism
We are calling on organizations, corporations, schools, hospitals, houses of worship, and government agencies in Delaware to become a “Participating Site” of the National YWCA Stand Against Racism event to be held on Friday, April 26, 2013.
The goal of the event is simple: we want to raise awareness that racism still exists in our community and that it can no longer be ignored or tolerated. Our strength is in numbers!
As a Participating Site of YWCA’sStand Against Racism event, you will be asked to host a “Stand” or event. To obtain additional information on how to do this and become a participating partner, please visitwww.StandAgainstRacism.org.
We hope we can count on your support as this movement is far too important!
