A core component of YWCA Tri-County Area’s work is a dedication to eliminating racism. This mission is infused into each of our programs, at every age level. We recognize racism as an adverse childhood experience. We participate in YWCA USA's annual Stand Against Racism each April, including our 5K Race Against Racism.
