YWCA Madison

Racial Justice Summit Resources

On September 29 and 30, 2016, more than 650 people filled the Monona Terrace Concourse to talk about the stories we tell around race-and how they can be used to divide us or to bring us together. Dynamic speakers challenged us to disrupt the status quo and confront racism and our own conscious, and implicit bias. We are pleased to provide the following resources to support you in the continued work of Changing the Narrative-Changing the way we talk about race. Save the Dates! The 2017 Racial Justice Summit will be held at the Monona Terrace on October 3 & 4.
