2019 Fall Racial Justice Breakfast
Oct 22 @ 8:00 am – 10:00 am
2019 Fall Racial Justice Breakfast @ Christ Church Cathedral

The Racial Justice Breakfast was established in 2001 to promote the YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism and create a safe space where participants can confront racism. Attendees experience meaningful dialogue about racism’s personal and community-wide effects and hear from keynote speakers who have had a national impact on landmark civil rights cases.

This Fall we welcome author and historian Taylor Branch to lead a meaningful panel discussion.

This event is SOLD OUT. Watch for 2020 Fall Racial Justice Breakfast event details!

She Screams Without Sound Candlelight Vigil
Oct 22 @ 6:15 pm – 8:00 pm
She Screams Without Sound Candlelight Vigil @ Hamilton County Courthouse

She Screams Without Sound was established in 1988, when more than 20 Hamilton County women were killed by their intimate partners. Alarmed by the devastating number of victims, employees of Women Helping Women and the YWCA decided to do something to raise awareness in the community and in the Hamilton County court system.

A candlelight vigil memorial has been held every October since 1988 during Domestic Violence Awareness Month to honor the victims, both known and unknown. We celebrate the lives of those who have survived domestic violence, and we provide support and hope to children exposed to violence and loss. At this evening program, candles are lit for the victims who died during the year in Hamilton County.
