Equity For All (Formerly known as Stand Against Racism)

Every April, YWCA agencies across the nation host public events that engage in open and honest dialogue that confront stereotypes and bias as a community. The goal of the annual event is to unite our community in a bold demonstration that delivers a clear message: We are on a mission to eliminate racism.

각각의 용기 있는 대화는 관점을 넓히고 새로운 도구를 배우며 우리 지역사회의 인종차별 근절에 열정적인 다양한 시민 커뮤니티와 연결할 수 있는 기회를 제공합니다.

Racial Justice Challenge

The Equity Challenge was originally developed by Dr. Eddie Moore Jr. (#BlackMind) and co-developed with Debby Irving and Dr. Marguerite Penick (#DiverseSolutions). The plan has been adopted by organizations, associations, and corporations all over the world. Dr. Moore is director of the Privilege Institute in Green Bay, WI., and created the Challenge to not only help people better understand issues surrounding equity, inclusion, privilege, leadership, and supremacy, but also to do so in a way that would build a habit of learning by stretching it a number of days.

Earlier this year, YWCA USA announced the launch of YWCA Racial Justice Challenge.

 The Racial Justice Challenge is the action component for the Until Justice Just Is campaign, which will begin the month of September (locally) to raise awareness of  systemic racism and how each of us can take action to advance justice.

Previously known as the Stand Against Racism Challenge or 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge, the YWCA Racial Justice, the YWCA Racial Justice Challenge was developed by YWCA Greater Cleveland in 2019. YWCA USA is excited to be partnering again with YWCAs across the country to offer this unique virtual learning community to participants across the country.

The YWCA Racial Justice Challenge is designed to create dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership. The Challenge works to foster personal reflection, encourage social responsibility, and motivate participants to identify and act on ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.

For two weeks, daily challenge activities (reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experience, etc.) are distributed via email and the website, allowing participants to connect with one another, discover how racial and social injustice impact our community, and identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination. Daily activities are not posted on the weekends.

To continue the conversation and explore other topics, consider joining our 인종 및 사회 정의 Facebook 그룹.

As shared by Bernice King, Dr. King’s daughter, “As you honor my father today, please honor my mother, as well. She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of The King Center, which was founded less than three months after Daddy died. Without Coretta Scott King, there would be no MLK Day.”

Black History Month

February is recognized across the United States and Canada as Black History Month. Some have begun to refer to February as Black Herstory Month, celebrating Black women throughout history who have changed our world for the better.

Take a moment to read a recent blog post that acknowledges Black history as ongoing.

흑인 역사는 계속되고 있다

Women’s March & Women’s History Month

매년 3월에는 여성의 역사를 기념하는 행사가 있습니다. 여성의 진보를 축하할 때 우리는 모든 여성이 고양될 때까지 어떤 여성도 고양되지 않는다는 것을 잊을 수 없습니다. 흑인의 역사와 여성의 역사는 여전히 우리 커뮤니티에서 기록되고 있으며, 각 이야기를 발전시키기 위한 우리의 노력은 상호 성공을 위해 서로 의존하고 있습니다.

YWCA Spokane, along with YWCA agencies across the nation, proudly support the annual Women’s March. The Women’s March is an opportunity for us to unite as a community and express our solidarity and commitment to the protection of the rights of all women. The Women’s March is a women-led movement bringing together people of all genders, ages, races, cultures, political affiliations, disabilities, and backgrounds to affirm our shared humanity and to stand in solidarity for social justice, racial equity, and women’s rights. Local marches take place in cities all around the nation and world.

Please consider joining YWCA Spokane as we gather and march together with other local agencies, individuals, and businesses for peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. Please follow us on social media to receive updates about the next Women’s March. Through unification and inclusion, we will light a fire of change. In solidarity, we will make a difference! Hear our voice!

변신 캠프

It is through our valued partnership with Jaime Stacy and SWAG that we are able to bring Transformations Camp back to the Spokane community after a two year pause due to COVID. In addition to championing this camp, Jaime has done an incredible job of lifting up and supporting young people in our community through her work at SWAG and through Garry and Shaw Middle Schools and at Rogers High School.

This week long, empowerment camp, facilitated by Jaime Stacey, centers the experience of 11-16 year olds who identify as young women of color. We cannot express enough how amazing Jaime is as a facilitator and leader in Spokane. It has been inspiring to watch her light up young people with sincere passion, care, joy, and love.

스포캔 프라이드

매년(보통 6월에) Spokane 커뮤니티는 전국 PRIDE의 달 동안 LGBTQ+ 해방을 축하하기 위해 함께 모입니다. PRIDE는 1969년 뉴욕의 Stonewall Inn에서 경찰의 급습에 맞서 싸운 용감한 사람들을 기리는 연례 행사입니다. YWCA Spokane 팀은 매년 퍼레이드와 축하 행사는 물론 연례 자원 박람회에도 참가하게 되어 기쁩니다.
