Jenny Pratt, Executive Director of the YWCA NCW, joins Dan Langager on the KOHO Morning Show to talk about the event. She said Stand Against Racism is a signature campaign of YWCA to build community among those who work for racial justice and to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in our communities. This campaign is one part of a larger national strategy to fulfill the YWCA mission of eliminating racism, with nearly 800 Stand Against Racism events nationwide next week.
