The Dream Lives On
So many decades ago, but the words move us still:
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they
will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Stand Against Racism is a movement of the YWCA with the goal of bringing people together from all walks of life - across the country - to raise awareness that racism still exists.
There has been much progress since King's "I Have a Dream" speech, but there is still much more work to do. That is why we need a Stand Against Racism: to remind us to be our best selves; to call us to respect others every day; to work together to build a stronger community.
The YWCA of Nashville and Middle Tennessee will partner YWCA's in 39 states throughout the country to Stand Against Racism, with the goal of bringing people together from all walks of life to raise awareness that racism still exists.
Join the YWCA of Nashville & Middle Tennessee at our public event on TODAY April 12th at 4:00 PM with this year's guest speaker John Seigenthaler at 1608 Woodmont Boulevard. Together, we can build a stronger community.
