2017 Stand Against Racism Campaign

Stand Against Racism is a nationwide YWCA movement. Every year, the Stand campaign brings people together from all walks of life to raise awareness and empower action toward eliminating racism. For 2017 Stand Against Racism, we joined with over 100 partner organizations to blanket the city with pledge boards, asking Bostonians everywhere to write what they will do to advance racial equity. We estimate that a minimum of 1,500 people made a personal pledge. See our takeaway blog post for common pledge themes, and what they tell us about how to advance racial equity in Boston.

Over 100+ businesses, schools, community groups, and organizations are participated in the campaign by hosting pledge boards. See who in the map below!
