Unity Festival and Race Against Racism

animation no  yearThe YWCA Northcentral PA invites you to join its first annual Unity Festival on April 30th beginning at 7:30 am.

The festival, designed to highlight the beauty and importance of our community’s multicultural and diverse population, will be held in conjunction with the YWCA’s Race Against Racism 5k. We are reaching out to groups and organizations that promote diversity in all its forms – from religious organizations, to groups who care for those with disabilities, the LGBTQ community and more. The goal of the YWCA’s Unity Fest is to promote peace and openness by providing a safe place to be together.

The YWCA believes that just by being together and sharing information in one location, we foster dialogue, diminish prejudice and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. The YWCA’s Race Against Racism, expected to draw about 200 runners, is one of dozens that will happen at the same day and time at YWCAs across the country to create a nation-wide movement toward equality.

Set-up time for the Unity Fest would be at 7:30 and tear-down time is planned for 11 am. If you have any questions or concerns, please call (570) 322-4637. We look forward to speaking with you and seeing you on April 30
