Stand Against Racism – No Hate No Fear

Stand Against Racism seeks to build community among those working for racial and social justice and raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in our communities. Our 2019 theme is No Hate No Fear – how racism and immigration intersect. We know that immigrant justice is racial justice, and that xenophobia, bigotry, and racism is continuing to impact the lives and safety of our communities.

The Stand Against Racism is a signature campaign of YWCA USA and is part of the larger national strategy to fulfill our mission of eliminating racism. Race and the legacy of discrimination continue to affect our lives – whether in our everyday interactions with others at work, school, or in our neighborhoods and communities.The 2019 Stand Against Racism is co-sponsored by the Tennessee Human Rights Commission and Metro Human Relations Commission.
