Stand Against Racism is a signature campaign of YWCA USA to build community among those who work for racial justice and to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in our communities. On April 26, Quinsigamond Community College joined with the local YWCA and other colleges, organizations, temples, churches, and schools throughout Central Massachusetts in taking a Stand Against Racism. 

Students, faculty and staff joined the Diversity Caucus for lunch and to sign the Stand Against Racism banner. A moving presentation and dramatic reading of civil rights texts excerpted from Hands on the Freedom Plow:  Personal Accounts by Women in SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee) was performed, followed by a question and answer session.
