The YWCA Greater Green Bay’s Stand Against Racism series is the foundation for our social justice work. Through this series, we are creating safe spaces for hard conversations that compel change. We are helping build an inclusive, welcoming community through collaboration, education and discussion. For more information, contact Andrea Huggenvik at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Where We Live series is the first extension of our Stand Against Racism series. Born from the social unrest following the murder of George Floyd, these discussions are intended to create space for the whole community to be present and engage in conversations about racism in America and, more locally, the Greater Green Bay area. We are bringing together community members, leaders, and experts to provide the information and guide the conversation needed to enact change. It is our hope that through these conversations members of the Green Bay community will acquire the tools needed to help eliminate racism.
The No Wrong Thing series is another extension of our Stand Against Racism series. These discussions are intended to be a safe space for the types of disarming conversations that many shy away from for fear of saying the wrong thing. Our panelists model the kind of transparency needed to build bridges across racial and other demographic differences in women of this region. These candid hour-long discussions are a refreshing look at the beauty and strength present when powerful, intelligent women work together for a common cause. Eliminating racism and empowering women in Brown County starts with conversations like these. View the entire series here.
