        2017 YWCA Racial Justice Summit: Living Our Racial Justice Values

        This year’s theme for the Racial Justice Summit is Living our Racial Justice Values: Building Collective Liberation. Especially through challenging and changing times this becomes even more critical. As we navigate in our communities and workplaces while we experience the shootings of African Americans by police, increased xenophobia against Muslims and immigrants, and the daily changing political landscape, how to we keep our eyes on the prize and stay in community with each other as we pursue racial justice and equity. Keynotes and break-out sessions will offer participants the opportunity to connect to this theme, and to think about strategies that they can use individually, at work, and in their communities to stay focused on a vision of the future in which everyone belongs.
