Stand Against Racism Community Rally

Presented by YWCA Nashville and Middle Tennessee at Public Square Park - Nashville, Nashville TN

May 05 2022
Stand Against Racism Community Rally

Join YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee and take a Stand Against Racism at our annual community rally in Downtown Nashville, featuring keynote speaker Caroline Randall Williams.

Stand Against Racism Community Rally

The 2022 Stand Against Racism Community Rally is taking place in person on the steps of the Historic Metro Nashville Courthouse. This lunchtime event will feature acclaimed author and scholar, Caroline Randall Williams, music, and an advocacy fair of community partners who are working for social and racial justice.

The country was founded on the idea of building a government of the people, by the people, for the people. More than two hundred years later, this vision has yet to be fully achieved. Though generations of civil rights activism have led to important gains in legal, political, social, educational, and other spheres, the forced displacement of indigenous peoples and the institution of slavery marked the beginnings of a system of racial injustice from which our country has yet to break free. That’s why this year’s Stand Against Racism theme is WE CAN’T WAIT – EQUITY & JUSTICE NOW!

The Stand Against Racism is a signature campaign of YWCA USA and is part of the larger national strategy to fulfill our mission of eliminating racism. Race and the legacy of discrimination continue to affect our lives – whether in our everyday interactions with others at work, school, or in our neighborhoods and communities.
