YWCA Speaks Out through Events

How Has COVID-19 Impacted Our Systems?

As a part of YWCA’s Stand Against Racism events, we will be taking a moment of silence on June 25 in memory of George Floyd. This day marks one month after his murder. We are asking individuals to take a moment of silence at 11:35am, for 8 minutes and 45 seconds.
COIVD-19 continues to impact loved ones, healthcare workers, service industry workers, children and our entire system. It’s impact challenges everyone to become creative, resourceful and caring. Yet, the coronavirus pandemic has allowed us to come together, across all sectors, regardless socioeconomic status, to create a sense of community again. 
Join YWCA Central Carolinas as we talk to individuals leading this fight in our systems and learn how they have had to adjust to this new normal. What policies and procedures have they had to adjust in order to meet the needs of the community?
Panelists will include D.A. Spencer MerriweatherSheriff Garry McFadden, Loaves and Fishes’ Grants and Advocacy Coordinator Shay Merritt, CMS Superintendent Earnest Winston and General Presbyter Jan Edmiston from The Presbytery of Charlotte. JCSU’s Program Director for the Master Work Program, Dr. Melvin Herring, will moderate the discussion.

This forum will take place on Thursday, June 25 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm via Zoom. The Zoom Link will be sent two days prior to the event. You will be able to log in through video chat or listen in through the phone.

Registration for the forum is now closed. You can view a live stream of the forum on our Facebook page and Youtube channel
