Racial Justice Summit
Each year, the YWCA Madison hosts a Racial Justice Summit that brings together community stakeholders to work on eliminating barriers that foster racism in our community. The Summit focuses on institutional racism and involves nationally-known keynote speakers and researchers, as well as local experts and advocates. Through an environment that encourages learning from and supporting each other in our common goals, the Summit provides a platform for action planning and community dialogue.
Save the Date! The 2014 Racial Justice Summit is October 2-3 at the Concourse Hotel.
The 2013 Racial Justice Summit was held October 2, 2013, in partnership with Wisconsin Council on Children and Families
The YWCA partnered with the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families's (WCCF) Race to Equity project to release their disparities report at the 2013 Racial Justice Summit. The WCCF aspires to make a greater contribution to narrowing and ultimately eliminating racial disparities in Wisconsin. They are beginning with a multi-year Race to Equity: Project to Reduce Racial Disparities in Dane County and hope subsequently to move into a broader effort to reduce racial disparities across Wisconsin. Download the report from the Race to Equity website.
