Advancing racial justice

Through education and advocacy on issues of racial justice and gender equity, working with organizations seeking to build greater understanding of racial justice issues and equity within their walls, and through programs focused on areas of significant racial and gender disparity – housing & supportive services, youth development, employment & economic development and health & wellness – YWCA St. Paul is in the community working to eliminate racism and empower women.

Community Events

To promote better understanding of the impact racism has on our lives, YWCA St. Paul informs and empowers our community to take action to advance racial justice and gender equity through our community events, workshops, advocacy and trainings. One example is our Equity and Justice Community Conversations. Video recordings of past events are available on our YouTube channel.

Core Programs

Learning Library

To further the understanding of racism and equity and to drive positive change that helps eliminate systemic racism, YWCA St. Paul created a Learning Library of resources providing information on racial justice, racism and the impact of racism on lived experiences.
