Event description
Join YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee as we kick off our 2020 Stand Against Racism programming!

About this Event

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. As we seek to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in our communities, we will stress the importance of civic engagement in racial justice work. YWCA will unite voices with community partners to educate, advocate, and promote the importance of civic engagement in racial justice work.

FREE educational forums, lunch and learns, and a public rally are planned from February through April.

WHAT: Lunch and learn on disenfranchisement, voter restoration, and a path towards racial justice

WHO: Dawn Harrington, Executive Director Free Hearts; Charlane Oliver, Executive Director The Equity Alliance; Brandon Tucker, Policy Director ACLU of Tennessee, Charles K. Grant, Veteran Litigator Baker Donelson (moderator)
