Until justice just is...


In partnership with the YWCA of Greater Lafayette, United Way of Greater Lafayette is hosting break out discussions to take a deeper dive into the YWCA’s Stand Against Racism Challenge. Sessions will be held weekly on zoom to deepen our understanding of some topics as they relate to diversity, equity and inclusion. The topics will be :

Disability | Explore the history of Eugenics, the Disability Rights Movement, the intersection of race, gender, and disability, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on those with differing abilities.

Housing | Learn how redlining continues to impact communities, who can access housing, and how racism, homophobia, and transphobia have become drivers of homelessness and its criminalization.

Mental Health | Dive into how psychology has been used as a tool of marginalization, access to mental healthcare, and discrimination’s impact on mental health outcomes.

Music | Discover the legacy of musician activists, racism in the music industry, cultural appropriation, how music pushes against gender stereotypes, and access to music education.

This cohort will begin the first week of August with weekly virtual sessions being held on Fridays at 12:00pm. Starting with August 4th. More details to follow.
