CLINTON — The YWCA is joining communities nationwide in the Stand Against Racism campaign for the month of April. 

A pledge display and banner are being hosted by various businesses, colleges, churches and organizations throughout Clinton for a day in April to offer community members the opportunity to sign the pledge and take an active role to ending racism. The calendar of hosts can be found on the YWCA website at www.ywcaclinton.org

The YWCA will take a Stand Against Racism in unison with others throughout the country. YWCAs on April 23 will join in a National Day of Action to urge Congress to pass the End Racial Profiling Act. From April 23 through 26, more than 300,000 people are expected to participate in a range of locally organized events involving public policy advocacy, community education and trainings.
