MUNCIE, Ind. (WISH) — For over 150 years, the YWCA has been at the forefront of the fight for racial justice, and while times have changed, representatives said they still have a lot of fight left in them.
In 1858, the Young Women’s Christian Association formed. Participating in social justice movements has been at its core since the start.
With chapters of YWCA now reaching across the U.S. including Muncie, Indiana.
That work remains at the front of what the organization does, taking a stand against racism is one of its latest ongoing fights.
WaTasha Barnes-Griffin is the chief executive director, even though time has changed a lot has remained the same.
