WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – As part of the YWCA’s national program to bring awareness to the issue of racism, the group’s Lower Cape Fear chapter will hold its third annual Stand Against Racism on Friday, according to YWCA officials.
“The Stand Against Racism is a national program of the YWCA aimed at raising awareness that racism still exists in our communities and that it should no longer be ignored or tolerated,” read a press release from the group. “The persistence and pervasiveness of racism continues to divide our community and keeps some individuals from achieving success in education, economics, employment, and a certain quality of life.”
Participants will form a “human chain” from 4 – 5 p.m. along College Road, from the YWCA to the corner of New Centre Drive.
Anyone is invited to participate.
