Come and partner with us by contributing to the focus of our work on tolerance, inclusion and diversity. We are passionate about the promotion of justice for all! 

Our Women For Racial Justice Breakfast is an annual event celebrating and working towards racial justice. Every October, the YWCA honors a woman at the forefront of the fight towards racial justice and brings together the Pasadena community in recognition of their work and to further the cause. This committee organizes the breakfast which includes finding sponsors, speakers, selling tables, doing logistics, and planning the silent auction.

The focus of our work is tolerance, inclusion and diversity. Eliminating racism and promoting social justice is a prerequisite to creating the inclusion and equitable society we seek. This committee furthers this ideal by holding public forums and panel discussions throughout the year. This year, we will be organizing “Talking the Talk” community discussions with topics ranging from facing our fears to racial profiling to human trafficking.

Another project administered by the Committee is the Racial Justice Pledge, a simple statement against the prejudice that has been signed by more than 500 people in the Pasadena community.
