April 7, 2015 – Carlisle, PA. YWCA Carlisle and Bosler Memorial Library encourage residents to sign their name to a signature board coupled with The Pledge statement of Stand Against Racism – a national initiative of YWCA USA – and take a small step to do their part in eradicating racism. Beginning, Thursday, April 9 signage will be placed in the entrance level lobby of Bosler Memorial Library that will rally individuals of all ages to commit their efforts to fostering diversity and ending all forms of institutional and structural racism.
“Stand Against Racism is a peaceful yet powerful way to get people to start talking about racism, it’s negative impact on communities, and how everyone can affect change in both small and big ways,” explained YWCA Carlisle Executive Director, Robin Scaer. “The healthy outcomes and results from a collective movement, such as this simple campaign, help people of all backgrounds and ages become more aware and involved with social justice issues. Being able to show support in meaningful ways empowers individuals and fosters the notion of working together for a greater good,” Scaer said. Stand Against Racism happens in conjunction with Race Against Racism taking place in the community on Saturday, April 25 at YWCA Carlisle’s facility located at 301 G Street in Carlisle.

“Bosler’s prominent location in the downtown district coupled with its ability to provide residents with social responsibility opportunities help to strengthen working relationships between vital associations, such as YWCA Carlisle, in our area,” commented Bosler Memorial Library Executive Director, Jeffrey D. Swope. “We are pleased to be part of a community conversation that encourages people to think about current topics and be part of a permanent solution for the betterment of all people, “Swope concluded.
YWCA Carlisle’s hosting and participation of Race Against Racism is in conjunction with its sister associations in Harrisburg, York, Lancaster, and Gettysburg as part of the YWCA USA’s Stand Against Racism program and Day of Commitment observance. “
Stand Against Racism began in 2007 at YWCA Trenton and YWCA Princeton and has grown to now include hundreds of YWCA Associations plus many businesses and colleges in participating communities across the nation. The campaign is part of YWCA’s larger national strategy to fulfill its mission of eliminating racism. www.StandAgainstRacism.org
