Racial Justice Programming is one of YWCA USA’s hallmark programs. Racial justice works to achieve the YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism. We have the following ongoing programs:
Race Against Racism: 5K run/walk is an event that unites people of all races and ages to demonstrate the community’s commitment to eliminating racism.
Anti-Biased Curriculum: Curriculum in our early learning centers that takes an active approach to challenging bias and prejudice, teaching children to respect each other’s difference.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Every January, the YWCA York’s QOP Program and Penn State York Campus collaborate to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. and his peaceful legacy.
