YWCA Kalamazoo’s annual Stand Against Racism event is all about building connections and moving our communities forward! Join us at the Capital and connect with advocates and decision-makers to advance reproductive justice in your community. Join us for a round table mixer to connect with community members, decision makers, and advocates. Stand Against Racism will also host a workshop to jumpstart community driven efforts to create reproductive health funds. This event will facilitate connections and inspire action to create communities and a state that is empowering women and eliminating racism! Guests are welcome to attend either the mixer, workshop, or both.

Round Table Mixer
The Stand Against Racism Round Table Mixer will be an opportunity for decision-makers, advocates, and community members to hear from each other and build connections. The round table mixer will be a loosely structured part of the event where we invite participants to come and go as they please. The mixer will begin at 11:00 am and end at 12:00 pm before the formal workshop begins.

The workshop will be a highly structured period where individuals will learn more about reproductive health funds and leave with concrete tools and the next steps to begin similar funds in their own communities. All are welcome. If you attend the workshop we do ask you to stay for the entire time, from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm. The workshop will provide an overview of what reproductive justice is, a look at existing funds, help you develop an understanding of your community, and build skills to successfully advocate for and operate a fund. RSVP is required for this portion of the event.
