Dialogues on Issues of Race and Discrimination

A- A A+

The YWCA Greater Austin believes that the best way to handle a difficult subject is through open, honest, productive conversation with many voices in the room.

Because racism and discrimination target marginalized populations, people of color, immigrants, and people who are undocumented, YWCA offers a space for the community to join and discuss these issues.

The YWCA, with its mission to eliminate racism and empower women, hosts a monthly dialogue for frank discussions, reflection, and contemplation of the psychological and emotional impact that racism/discrimination have on the individual and the community. These discussions also offer the opportunity to engage with others, develop personal awareness, and make connections.

This free dialogue is open to all of the community. Bring your lunch and let’s talk! Every final Friday of the month; 12:00-1:30pm

YWCA Greater Austin
2015 S IH 35, Suite 110
