Add to Calendar 25-04-2013 25-04-2013 15 YWCA Stand Against Racism The YWCA White Plains & Central Westchester is hosting a Stand Against Racism on Thursday, April 25, 2014 from 8:30-10:30am at Jay Heritage Center, 210 Boston Post Road, Rye, NY 10580. RSVP to jnesbitt@ywcawpcw.org. This event will feature a diverse panel of community leaders who will address the root causes of racism in an effort to encourage conversations across all cultures in Westchester County. The Stand Against Racism is a movement of the YWCA with the goal of bringing people together from all walks of life to raise awareness that racism still exists. The methodology of the Stand Against Racism is to bring together like-minded people who wish to share in our vision of eliminating racism and celebrating the richness of diversity. Racism and discrimination hurt everyone and have had a profound effect on children and adults, our communities, and our institutions. Today, we can look back on our history and examine the direction, development, and effects of the enslavement of Africans, the exclusion of Asians from immigration and citizenship, the dispossession of Indians and Mexicans from their lands, as events that have shaped the current attitudes and actions supported by the power of law, institutional structures, and culture in this country. Race and the legacy of discrimination continue to affect our lives in our everyday interactions with others at work, school, or in our neighborhoods and communities. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=136074 Jay Heritage Center true DD/MM/YYYY
