Stand Against Racism is the YWCA’s signature racial justice campaign. Each year, events take place in over 750 locations across the United States. YWCA Greater Pittsburgh annually participates as their mission is to work to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities. As part of YWCA Greater Pittsburgh’s 2016 Stand Against Racism, Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History are inviting all staff and visitors to participate in a group #STANDAGAINSTRACISM photograph on Friday, April 29th. Museum admission is NOT required to participate.

This Stand Against Racism event will take place at 2:00 p.m. in the Carnegie Museum of Art Sculpture Court. The Hall of Architecture will be a substitute location if it’s raining.

In addition to the group photograph, visitors will also be invited to sign the YWCA’s Stand Against Racism pledge and promise to work for racial justice not just that day, but all year long!

If you can’t join in on Friday, please feel free to visit for information about how you can participate as an individual. You can also take the pledge online here and email it to national, as well as local, policymakers.
