Previously Called Stand Against Racism

Names are important. Names have the power to invite or to exclude, to inspire or to disempower. At YWCA Spokane, we have an opportunity to invite and inspire activism and engagement toward a world of true equity from all for all — and we have a responsibility to ensure that that is reflected in the names we use.

It’s time to be more inclusive in our language and our campaigns. Since 2015, we have invited and inspired countless activists, advocates, and allies to join us in the movement to eliminate racism through our annual Stand Against Racism event. The event has served its purpose in the last eight years that united our efforts against racism, but it is time to be more inclusive with our message as we continue to evolve and learn. While the event itself has long united us against racism, we acknowledge that the word “stand” evokes feelings of ableism, exclusivity, and disempowerment. As an organization dedicated to advancing justice for all, it’s our responsibility to ensure that all are included in the movement and inspired to take part in advancing justice in partnership with us.

As we further our own learning in our collective mission to advance justice, our Stand Against Racism event has been rebranded as Equity For All. Click or tap the links below to visit events from recent years.
