YWCA Nevada's Second Annual Gala and Anniversary Celebration

"Survivors" Luncheon

Please join YWCA Nevada at our second annual Luncheon and Anniversary Celebration.

Our theme this year is “Survivors”. We are honoring women who are survivors of cancer, domestic violence, and gender-based crimes.

We are also raising awareness in the fight against domestic violence, financial abuse, and victims of crimes in our community. As a leading force on addressing challenges and issues that face women and teen girls, we have a responsibility to provide vital and innovative services to help move women, girls and children into self-sufficiency and economic empowerment.

2018 STAND AGAINST RACISM

The YWCA’s Stand Against Racism™, which happens annually in April, is a partnership of YWCA Associations throughout the country with the goal of bringing people together from all walks of life to raise awareness that racism still exists and that it can no longer be ignored or tolerated. Our strength is in numbers!

Any group of any size can become a Participating Site of the Stand Against Racism™: corporations large or small, schools (from elementary schools to universities), government agencies, non-profit or civic organizations, hospitals, houses of worship, even a group of neighbors gathered around a kitchen table. As a Participating Site of the Stand Against Racism™, you can host a “Stand” at your location. Events can be either private or public, or you can choose to attend and support another group's event. Becoming a participating site in Stand Against Racism™ is very simple. When you sign up, you will be provided with materials and support for your event.

Here are a few ways that your Stand could take shape:

Talk within your Group: Have a dialogue about race, possibly based on inspirational quotes, a common reading or a video which brings out these issues. Lead a short conversation among staff over a break or lunch. You could also research the ways your organization does or does not serve the African American and Latino communities and share it with your colleagues. Look for ways to better serve.

Day of Support: A day of support can be as simple as having all employees at a business or students at a school wear the buttons provided or attending another group’s event. Put up the posters that the Stand Against Racism provides and/or put up a really big sign in front of your building which says “We stand against racism with the YWCA” or the like.

Educational Events: Host a film screening, public forum or local speaker.

Rally: Host an inspirational rally to raise public awareness, put pressure on local decision makers or take local action.

Service Project: Partner with another local organization or business, to reach out and give back to the community. Service projects are an excellent way to start conversations, bring people together from different part of the community and gain perspective around racial issues in Las Vegas.

Social Media Action: Encourage people to tweet or post on Facebook about how they plan to combat racism in the community. Participate in the Stand Against Racism photo petition by sending in photos of people wearing a Stand Against Racism t-shirts.
