The YMCA is a worldwide movement of adults, children and families that come together to grow in spirit, mind and body. Mission-driven Ys inspire people to care about the world and each other, to have a sense of integrity, to foster a culture of mutual understanding and respect, and to accept responsibility for their own lives and commit to improving the lives of others.
Let me be 100% clear.
We stand against racism, in all its forms, when carried out against people of color who have been denied our country’s promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
We commit to speak up when injustice is perpetrated. Silence allows racism to persist in ways not always visible. We know we haven’t always done everything we could.
We continue to diversify our staff and boards in intentional ways, and know we can do more.
We denounce structural racism as a moral issue, and commit to use our power, big or small, to fight against it.
We will challenge ourselves and others in the community to uphold these statements, and ask you to help hold us accountable.
We commit to deepen our mission so we can build a community where everyone can breathe.
