Racial Justice and Social Justice

The Elimination of Racism
The YWCA supports policies that contribute to the elimination of racism. This includes policies that eliminate racial profiling, increase immigrant rights, retain and strengthen affirmative action, reduce hate crimes and result in increased education on racism and its elimination.

Affirmative Action
The YWCA supports the maintenance and strengthening of affirmative action laws to protect people from discrimination on the basis of race and gender.
