Stand Against Racism - Virtual Community Rally & Musical Event

Presented by YWCA Nashville and Middle Tennessee at ONLINE

Apr 29 2021
Stand Against Racism - Virtual Community Rally & Musical Event

Join YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee as we lift our collective voices and address racism as a public health crisis.

The YWCA takes a Stand Against Racism every day by raising awareness about the impact of institutional and structural racism and by building community among those who work for racial justice.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they will host their Stand Against Racism community rally virtually. You are invited to hear from community and civil rights leaders and experts in the field of public health including:

Brenda Haywood, Deputy Mayor – Metro Nashville

Beverly Watts, Exec. Director – TN Human Rights Commission

Kinika Young, JD – Sr. Dir. Health Policy & Advocacy – Tennessee Justice Center

Wayne J. Riley, M.D., MPH, MBA – President, SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University | Former 10th President, Meharry Medical College | Director, HCA Healthcare, Inc.

This year’s Stand Against Racism event will also feature music, poetry, and the 2021 Carrie Hull Award for Service will also be presented.

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.

Regions Foundation of Tennessee is our Presenting Sponsor for the 2021 Stand Against Racism.  The Tennessee Human Rights Commission and Metro Human Relations Commission are also returning sponsors of the community rally.
