The Racial Justice Challenge is your chance to address systemic racism head on. Build your own tools for dealing with issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership!

YWCA is excited to announce the launch of YWCA Racial Justice Challenge, to begin on April 17, 2023. The Racial Justice Challenge is the action component for the Until Justice Just Is campaign, which will run throughout the month of April to raise awareness of systemic racism and how each of us can take action to advance justice.

For four weeks, daily challenge activities (reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experience, etc.) are posted in the Challenge app and website, allowing participants to connect with one another, discover how racial and social injustice impact our community, and identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination. Each week covers a different topic related to equity and social justice. Daily activities are not posted on the weekends.


Housing & Equity Event Recap

YWCA Glendale and Pasadena hosted an incredible panel conversation with Housing Justice and Homelessness and Domestic Violence prevention advocates underscoring the barriers and solutions to ensure healthy livable neighborhoods are possible for all. Thank you, Brandon Lamar, Betti Robinson, Rabeya Sen and Rev. Zach Hoover!
Safe, quality, affordable housing promotes health, mental health, civic participation, and community building and YWCA Glendale and Pasadena will continue elevating our social justice partners’ actions until housing justice is an expectation, not the exception.
Until society and governments address the historical exclusionary and racist housing, employment, and voting policies that prevent Black, Latinx, Native Americans, and Indigenous people from social, economic and housing opportunity.
