매년 4월 전국의 YWCA 에이전시는 지역 사회의 고정 관념과 편견에 맞서는 공개적이고 정직한 대화에 참여하는 공개 행사를 개최합니다. 연례 행사의 목표는 명확한 메시지를 전달하는 대담한 시위에서 우리 커뮤니티를 통합하는 것입니다. 우리는 인종 차별주의를 없애기 위한 사명을 하고 있습니다.
각각의 용기 있는 대화는 관점을 넓히고 새로운 도구를 배우며 우리 지역사회의 인종차별 근절에 열정적인 다양한 시민 커뮤니티와 연결할 수 있는 기회를 제공합니다.

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.
This year, YWCA USA has adopted the Challenge and shared it with YWCA associations across the country, renaming it the Stand Against Racism Challenge. Each challenge includes encouraging prompts each day to dedicate a few moments to build more effective social justice habits by reading an article, listening to a podcast, or reflecting on a personal experience.
이 도전은 조직적인 인종차별을 더 잘 이해하기 위한 중요한 정보와 역사적 맥락을 제공할 뿐만 아니라; 공정하고 공정하며 평등한 커뮤니티를 만드는 데 도움이 되는 인종 및 사회 정의 노력에 지속적으로 참여하는 촉매제가 되기를 바랍니다.

HONORING Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Each year, YWCA Spokane is proud to honor the life and accomplishments of Martin Luther King Jr. by joining the annual march, rally, and resource fair facilitated by the MLK Jr. Family Outreach Center.
Below are some actions from the MLK Center to step into service this MLK Day and everyday.
To learn more about the ways you can step into action, please contact the MLK Center by calling 509-858-0856 or by visiting their 페이스북 페이지.
MLK Day is also an important day to acknowledge the work of Coretta Scott King, Dr. King’s wife. 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.

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!
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.
