Racial Justice

YWCA Central Carolinas is committed to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all in Charlotte. We live this mission every day. Will you join us?

We provide multiple Racial Justice forums a year, held at our Park Road campus where people of all socioeconomic backgrounds, ethnicities, genders and ages are welcomed in a safe space to have open conversations around difficult topics. In this way, we aim to build trust and relationships and make our community stronger. And each April, as part of a National Campaign by YWCA USA, YWCA Charlotte hosts Stand Against Racism at the corner of Trade and Tryon in Uptown. This public awareness campaign features music, poetry and singing, as we celebrate the diversity of the Queen City and ask our neighbors to Stand with us Against Racism.
