    Event Description:
    We're kicking off our 2020 Lunch and Learn series with YWCA's Racial Bias Training. The training will discuss inclusivity, acceptance, and more. 

    YWCA Charleston's Racial Justice Program is integral to its mission in eliminating racism. Dating back to the 1940's, YWCA Charleston seated a woman of color on its board of directors and issued an official proclamation condemning segregation. Over the decades, their work has taken many forms, including training, research, and consciousness-raising events. For several years, YWCA Charleston has had a racial justice advocate working in Kanawha County courts, ensuring victims of domestic violence receive equal treatment and protection under the law.

     In 2017, YWCA Charleston launched its inaugural Race to End Racism, held in conjunction with YWCA USA's Stand Against Racism campaign. A Racial Justice Committee guides the program, comprised of members of diverse faiths, ethnicities, races, ages, socio-economic statuses, and professions. The YWCA Charleston works with a broad spectrum of partners and social justice organizations to address the ways racism is tearing the fabric of our families and communities.
