Unite To Heal PA

A YWCA INITIATIVE

YWCAs of Greater Pittsburgh, Tri-County Area, York, and Lancaster are partnering on an initiative to engage our respective communities in acts of racial healing. We define racial healing as the process by which the acknowledgement of past wrongs is necessary, as well as the recognition of the lasting effects racial trauma has had on us as individuals, within our institutions and communities.


The work of racial healing requires truth telling, acknowledging one another’s humanity as we move forward to better our communities and society. We acknowledge the healing journey can be arduous, but we believe we can transform our communities through collective impact leading us closer to healing and progress.

Racism is a Public Health Crisis and has been declared so in 4 different Counties in Pennsylvania. This virtual Community Now panel discussion happened on December 3rd, 2021. Our PA YWCA leaders discussed the varied intersections of racism and how we can begin addressing the crisis and work towards healthier more equitable communities.

Panelists:

Stacie Blake (YWCA CEO Lancaster), Angela Reynolds (YWCA CEO Greater Pittsburgh), Stacey Woodland (YWCA CEO Tri-County), Jean Treuthart (YWCA CEO York)

Moderator:

Diane Hightower
