WE WEAR BLACK
The Y's African American Resource Network (AARN) cast a vision in 2020, as a response to the societal awakening to systemic racism, imploring all Ys to become anti-racist, multicultural organizations that intentionally lead and boldly model diverse and inclusive cultures that impact and strengthen the foundations of our communities.
The AARN acknowledges the history of racism in the US which permeates every system including our organization. They acknowledge that in order to dismantle these systems of oppression we must work in solidarity against all forms of social inequality and oppression.
They invite you and our Y to join us for We Wear Black on Friday, February 25th, 2022, to take a stand against injustice and racism in all forms. We Wear Black to bring awareness to systemic racism and oppression of Black people in the United States and around the globe. Join them. Take a Stand.
