2022 Racial & Social Justice Spotlight Series

Each month, our Equity Coordinator chats with an organization or individual in our community to spotlight the work they do to create real and lasting change for a more equitable Spokane.

If you or someone you know should have their advocacy work highlighted through our RSJ Spotlight series, please email equity coordinator, larae@ywcaspokane.org.

Image of Native woman with red handprint over her mouth symbolizing the Missing, Murdered Indigenous Women movement, with quote that reads, "It seemed like anyone who wasn't Indigenous had no clue what was going on. Which is why I feel really inclined to bring awareness to it. Learning about the disproportionate rates of domestic violence, of violence in general towards Native woman and women of color just made me more passionate."

Image of Hispanic man with text that reads, "I am not scared about what our next generation's going to do. As long as we're able to have these hard conversations about how history and current society and cultures can negatively impact our human experience, they will carry on that work and dismantle in a lot healthier ways because we're providing those tools for them to be able to have those difficult conversations, to express how they're feeling, and why they're feeling it. And to set expectations for everybody else on how they want to be treated, looked at, and being able to ask for that."
