Beth Emet Stands Against Racism

April 28, 2022 @ 10:25 am - 11:00 am

  • This event has passed.

Participate with Beth Emet at the annual YWCA Stand Against Racism. We’ll gather along Ridge Avenue from 10:25 to 11:00AM to take our place as we stand along the corner of Dempster and Ridge. Bring a sign or poster confirming. Bring a whistle, bell or other noisemaker to attract car riders to our important message.

We will be joining dozens of Evanston organizations and hundreds of individuals, young and old, in a demonstration extending along Ridge Avenue in solidarity with communities all over the nation. In this time of rising violence, bigotry, and government attacks on civil rights, we all need to stand together and make our voices heard loud and clear.

Then, join the YWCA’s Stand Against Racism Keynote Address, “Calling in Allies for Shared Accountability”, 12:00-1:30 pm. Loretta J. Ross, an intellectual, professor, and activist, will speak about calling in allies and fighting white supremacy.

The keynote address is free and virtual. Register with YWCA Evanston/North Shore.
