As part of the Racial Justice and Immigrant Outreach program, YWCA Rock
County is a part of the national movement of more than 200 YWCA’s
working to eliminate racism. Our commitment, like our national
organization, runs deep. While the YWCA has been working in Rock County
since 1922, addressing issues facing women, our mission has been refined
to focus on the challenges of racism and civil rights.
Racial Justice Events:
Stand Against Racism: YWCA Rock County is on a mission to Stand Against Racism! We take a
Stand Against Racism every day by raising awareness about the impact of
institutional and structural racism and by building community among
those who work for racial justice.
