Whether you look at it from a social or economic point of view, embracing cultural diversity can improve our lives in many ways. As many find a reason to divide over differences, we at YWCA Quad Cities strive to stand together and support all of those that need it. To celebrate this event and the cause for which it stands, YWCA Quad Cities will honor individuals who are using their WORDS, their ACTIONS, and their CHOICES to make a significant impact against racism in and around the Quad Cities, through challenging absent and harmful narratives on race, and building solutions that unite rather than divide. Nominations are open now – submit yours HERE!
