At the core of YWCA Greater Newburyport—and sister YWCAs across the U.S. and around the globe—are racial justice efforts that break down internal and external barriers to racial equality and challenge our communities to move toward equity in the workplace, housing, education, and all aspects of life.
Racial Justice Committee
Chaired by a high school member of the YWCA Board of Directors, this committee, made up of community members and YWCA Board members, spearheads the racial justice work of our YWCA. The group plans public events such as the Martin Luther King Jr. celebration as well as other educational and awareness activities throughout the year. Our efforts include collaborating with other community organizations to strengthen and expand our efforts. If you are interested in joining this committee email the YWCA staff person who assists the committee.
