Equity & Justice Center of Excellence

In order to achieve our mission of empowering all people, especially the young to reach their fullest potential, the Y must become an anti-racist organization which is why, on October 1, 2020, our organization took a pledge to formalize the commitment to educating ourselves, having hard conversations, reducing barriers, supporting staff, and unleashing potential for all. 

We're beginning these next steps by owning and acknowledging the truths of our past so we may all heal from the harm we have caused. We use this knowledge to inform the anti-racist and equitable future of the Y. 

Join us on our journey and review the steps we have taken and how you can get involved.
