Racial Justice

Can you imagine a world where no one is disadvantaged because of their race?  A world where opportunities and systems are fair and equitable, and that everyone can have equitable opportunities to achieve their dreams and goals?  

We can.  

Racial justice is the systematic fair treatment of people of all races that results in equitable opportunities and outcomes for everyone. All people are able to achieve their full potential in life, regardless of race, ethnicity or the community in which they live. Racial justice — or racial equity — goes beyond trying not to be a racist. It’s not just about what we are against, but also what we are for. A “racial justice” framework can move us from a reactive posture to a more powerful, proactive, and even a preventative approach.

YWCA Northeast Indiana strives for an equitable community by offering educational opportunities.  We believe racial justice includes education.
