Change starts with where you are, within your own community.

We invite you to attend  WHERE WE LIVE: Connecting Green Bay – Resources to End Racism.

There are numerous agencies, businesses and individuals working to end racism in Brown county. This installment of Where We Live will provide insight into a variety of community studies and efforts to address the disparate impact of racism in the lives of members of the greater Green Bay community, and share local efforts working to lay a foundation for change.

Please submit your questions ahead of time to administrator@ywcagreenbay.org, so we can shape the discussion and make sure to touch on the most important issues to the community.

This event will be hosted via Zoom webinar and streamed live to Facebook. We will also make the recordings available on social media and our website upon the event’s completion.

The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. In support of this mission and these goals, the YWCA offers programs and services to meet critical needs, promote self-sufficiency, eliminate racism and violence, and achieve equal opportunities for all people. We endeavor to create a safe space for the community to congregate and engage in conversations and connections that compel change for the entire community one member at a time. Learn more about the YWCA programs discussed in the webinar.
