Until Justice Just Is

Take A Stand With YWCA Central Carolinas

YWCA’s annual Until Justice Just Is event aims to connect, celebrate and strengthen those working in social and racial justice in and around the Charlotte community. We are on a mission to eliminate racism, and that starts by calling attention to it. 

YWCA's Until Justice Just Is 2023

Until Justice Just Is (previously known as Stand Against Racism) is an annual series of events held at YWCAs across the country that raises awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in our communities and build community among those who work for racial justice while providing opportunities to educate. This year, our association will focus on mental health and racial trauma by discussing Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (P.T.S.S.), a theory developed by Dr. Joy DeGruy. Join us for our first in-person discussion since COVID, as we unpack P.T.S.S.’s definition along with the impact of multigenerational oppression on those of African descent with our panelists Isis Bey, LCSW, Sonyia Richardson, PhD, MSW, LCSW and Racquel Ward, LCSW, LCAS.

We hope you’ll join us for our forum More Than a Notion: A Discussion on Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome and its Radiating Effects on Black America on April 5th, 6pm at the Allegra Westbrook Public Library. Register below!
