YWCA Action Conversations on Race

May 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 12:00 pm on day Third of the month, repeating until May 18, 2022

On the third Wednesday of every month, YWCA Greater Pittsburgh’s Center for Race and Gender Equity presents Action Conversations on Race, a panel discussion dedicated to racial justice. Featuring local experts and leaders in fields such as equity and diversity, policy change, and advocacy, these conversations are designed to build community and create change.

Upcoming themes:

COVID-19 and Racialized Health Disparities – February 16th, 2022
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the complex ways in which race plays a significant role in health disparities. Learn more about supporting Pittsburgh’s various efforts to address the COVID-19 pandemic, including vaccine hesitancy, from a racial and gender equity standpoint.

Anti-Asian Racism – March 16th, 2022
On this day last year in Atlanta, we faced a grim reminder that AAPI women are routinely targeted by violence. It is not enough that President Biden signed the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act into law as a response to rising anti-Asian violence. Join us in conversation as our panelists discuss taking effective and comprehensive action against anti-Asian racism.

Environmental Racism and the Climate Crisis – April 20th, 2022
Low-income women in communities of color are disproportionately burdened by environmental problems, including the extreme weather caused by climate change. We must act together now to enact policies that address the climate crisis and its ongoing connection to indigenous injustice, racism, and gender inequality.

Reproductive Justice – May 18th, 2022
Low-income women in communities of color are disproportionately burdened by environmental problems, including the extreme weather caused by climate change. We must act together now to enact policies that address the climate crisis and its ongoing connection to indigenous injustice, racism, and gender inequality.
