Weinberg Staff Stand Against Racism on April 28, 2017

Weinberg College staff joined fellow staff with Northwestern and other members of the Evanston community in the annual YWCA Stand Against Racism campaign.  Hundreds of participants stood along Ridge and other areas around Evanston to show solidarity in bringing awareness to racial injustice. There was phenomenal support from drivers who honked their horns to show their support. Stand Against Racism is a signature campaign of the YWCA to build community to work towards racial justice and to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism.
