Since the 1980's, the mission of the YWCA of Metropolitan Chicago has been empowering women and eliminating racism.

To do that in this moment, the Y is launching two new initiatives.

"The Racial Justice League" is made up of people and organizations that: pledge to advance racial justice, make a donation to the YWCA and commit to 'specific, tangible actions."

And the other initiative is the 'Until Justice, Just Is' campaign.
