THAT’S A WRAP!
STAND AGAINST RACISM CHALLENGE 2022 IN REVIEW

These past 21 days of the Stand Against Racism Challenge (SAR) have proven to be intense, meaningful, and opened our minds to unlimited growth through productive dialogues! Videos and discussions about race, culture, and social injustices, have impacted countless people. YWCA South Florida would like to thank everyone who participated and provided feedback on this initiative because you made this educational event impactful and successful.

We have seen countless examples of continued racism in our country that rightfully create an outcry for justice. Participation in the Challenge helped us learn and explore how racial injustice and social justice impact our community and connect and identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination. 

Thank you for completing YWCA’s Stand Against Racism Challenge. You were part of a national movement to end racial inequities and South Florida’s largest collective learning experience.
