Equity For All (Formerly known as Stand Against Racism)

Every April, YWCAs 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 the 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.

The 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.

2023 registration

Previously known as the Stand Against Racism Challenge, or 21-Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge, 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.

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.

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!

변신 캠프

It is through our valued partnership with Jaime Stacy and Strong Women Achieving Greatness (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

Each June, the Spokane community comes together to celebrate LGBTQ+ liberation during national PRIDE month. PRIDE is an annual celebration that honors the brave individuals who fought back against police raids in 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in New York. Our team at YWCA Spokane is excited to participate in the parade and celebration each year, as well as in the annual resource fair.

In 2022, YWCA Spokane was proud to participate in the Pride Parade & Festival, brought back by 스포캔 프라이드!
