Event Details

Join us the last Friday of April each year as we kick-off the day by serving a light Continental breakfast at the YWCA! We will learn from a panel of immigrants from countries ranging from Colombia, to Samoa, to the Phillipines and Mexico. Our panel will discuss what their experiences were like, as they immigrated to our country and our community. It will be an enlightening event.

Stand Against Racism is a national event that began in Trenton NJ in 2006. It is a movement across the country with the am of bringing people together from all walks of life - to raise awareness that racism still exists.
