The YWCA Evanston/North Shore invites local organizations to join the annual Stand Against Racism from 12:30 to 12:55 p.m. on April 29. Last year, more than 50 schools, places of worship, businesses, and organizations around the North Shore helped raise awareness that racism still exists in the community and that it can no longer be ignored or tolerated.

The event attracts more than 300,000 individuals nationally each year, with 10,000 in Evanston and Skokie.

Registration is open at standagainst racism.org. To the question about a relationship with a local YWCA organization, registrants should select “yes” and type in YWCA Evanston/North Shore.
