Population(s) Served
Adults

The YWCA Evanston/North Shore is helping our community understand, challenge and eliminate racism. We foster opportunities to engage in open dialogue about race, racism and race relations. Our efforts include racial justice dialogue series using films and books as a catalyst to encourage youth and adults to challenge their own prejudices and encourage conversations about the impact of racism on all of our lives. We seek to empower women through education and leadership, enhancing their ability to live independent, self-sufficient lives. Financial literacy educates low to moderate income women about basic money management.

Population(s) Served

We know that racism is more than personal bias. Racism continues because it is built into our institutions and policies, fostering predictable patterns of inequity.

We are dedicated to promoting racial and gender equity at the individual, interpersonal, and institutional levels by partnering with individuals and institutions through training and education, community engagement programs, and annual events.
