YWCA of the Greater Capital Region, Inc. hosts Ride Against Racism



YWCA of the Greater Capital Region, Inc. is hosting its inaugural Ride Against Racism on Saturday, May 1 along the Mohawk-Hudson Bike Path and virtually.  Ride Against Racism (RaR) will unite our community in a bold demonstration of solidarity that delivers a clear message: We Are On A Mission To Eliminate Racism. This all-abilities event will include a call to action for individuals to create change through action in their own lives and their communities.

RIDE AGAINST RACISM is a part of YWCA USA’s signature campaign STAND AGAINST RACISM, held at over 200 sites annually across the nation. YWCA’s commitment to racial justice and civil rights runs deep. The organization’s intersectional mission to eliminate racism and empower women demands for advocating against the oppression that many groups and individuals endure, including through recognizing the interconnected experiences of discrimination and disadvantage that women face from their overlapping identities.

This is a self-coordinated bike ride with no starting or finish line, chip-timing, or firm start and end times. YWCA-GCR will staff check-in sites along the bike trail in Bethlehem, Albany, and Watervliet from 10AM to 3PM for riders to receive materials, say hello, get food or water, and ride on! Rain Date: Sunday, May 2, 2021. Interested individuals can donate or register to ride here: https://runsignup.com/Race/NY/Albany/RideAgainstRacism

In coordination with the 2021 Stand Against Racism, YWCA-GCR will also be hosting a live, virtual conversation streaming on their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ywca.gcr on Wednesday, April 21 at 7PM entitled “Racism as a Public Health Crisis.” A panel of organizers, educators, and community activists will break down the exhausting but crucial struggle to fight racism in our society. They will address the institutional trends of DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) and how racism and racist policies infiltrate the countless systems and organizations we interact with every single day.”
