We will get up and continue to do the work until injustice is rooted out, until institutions are transformed, until the world sees women, girls, and people of color the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable. We are proud to be recognize the 2021 YWCA Women for Racial Justice honorees who have made significant advances in eliminating racism and empowering women:
