Beyond Pink Hats: A Courageous Conversation Between White Women & Women of Color
Mar 27 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us, for our third dinner and dialogue, ‘Beyond Pink Hats: A Courageous Conversation Between White Women & Women of Color.’ Following the Women’s March, and amid the #EqualPay and #MeToo movements, we should work together to ensure women of color are included in the conversation.

This workshop is part of a series of activities YWCA National Capital Area is conducting for this year – for community dialogue, education, and to empower each of us to take an active role in dismantling racism. Through facilitated conversations, we will explore the dynamics of race, bias, and inequity. Share and learn from your neighbors. We are stronger together in the work to eliminate racism and empower women.

Stand Against Racism Rally: No Hate. No Fear.
Apr 27 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

No Hate. No Fear. Immigrant Justice is Racial Justice

Let’s activate our collective power for a future without racism. Civic engagement looks different for everyone. Whether you organize, advocate, vote or serve your communities, each of us can take a stand against racism by working together.

Join us as we raise our voices to denounce the structural and institutional racism that hurts our communities each and every day. As civil rights are eroded for communities of color, we must work to support full access and engagement for women and girls of color in the political process.
