No Hate. No Fear. Immigrant Justice is Racial Justice.
 
The violence and trauma enacted upon immigrant communities and people of color have become increasingly visible at the forefront of conversations on race, citizenship, and criminalization.
 
In this moment, our country and our communities must confront these historical injustices as we exist in a political environment that exponentially strengthens and emboldens anti-immigrant attitudes and policies.

Take The Pledge
 
In light of heightened anti-immigration efforts and emboldened xenophobia and openly racist behavior and violence in this country, we at YWCA Greater Pittsburgh reassert our support for sanctuary policies and our commitment to standing in solidarity with immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, and all communities of color facing the very real threat of racist and xenophobic attacks.
 
Join us at this year's Stand Against Racism panel discussion event to take the pledge to stop anti-immigration policies, and be sure to check out the YW's FacebookTwitter, and Instagram to learn more about our work on this important issue.
