FYI: Stand Against Racism


I wanted to make sure readers were aware of a national initiative lead by the YWCA called "Stand Against Racism". Information is included below:

The Stand Against Racism is a movement of the YWCA that aims to eliminate racism by raising awareness through its annual event.

Organizations across the United States are invited to become Participating Sites by hosting their own "Stand" locally. Individuals are then invited to join any of the "Stands", where hundreds of thousands of people will take a Stand Against Racism across the country.

You can learn more here and look to see if their are events in your area here.

While it may be too late to become a participating organization (the event is next Friday April 30th), I hope that many of you will participate in whatever is happening where you live. For my part I will be facilitating a discussion of the film, "Race: The Power of an Illusion" for public health professionals that day. If you do get to participate in something please let Baha'i Thought readers know in the comment section!
