Founded by the YWCA Trenton and YWCA Princeton in 2007, Stand Against Racism is now a signature campaign of YWCA USA. This campaign is designed to build community among those who work for racial justice and to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism. Stand Against Racism is one part of our larger national strategy to fulfill our mission of eliminating racism.
Communities and organizations are invited to become a Participating Site by taking a Stand. Individuals can join existing events or take individual Stands. Between April 23rd and April 26th 2015, hundreds of thousands of people across the country will take a Stand Against Racism. Registration is now open!


Learn more here and email Taylor if you or your student group is interested in helping out.

Inspiration Corporation http://www.ncdcnorthwestern.org/volunteer-with-our-site-spotlight-inspiration-corporation/ http://www.ncdcnorthwestern.org/volunteer-with-our-site-spotlight-inspiration-corporation/#comments Tue, 10 Feb 2015 19:25:49 +0000 http://www.ncdcnorthwestern.org/?p=1501

The Inspiration Corporation is a non-profit organization that provides meals, life-skills training, subsidized housing, and a supportive community for Chicago’s homeless. As volunteers working through the Northwestern Community Development Corps (NCDC), our role in the Inspiration Cafe is to help serve breakfast to homeless individuals who are part of the Inspiration program. It’s a great chance to give back, sit down and talk to these folks, and also enjoy a delicious breakfast yourself. You can check out their website (http://www.inspirationcorp.org/programs/cafe/cafe.html) for more information about Inspiration Cafe and other services provided by the Inspiration Corporation.
