We know that this year, and this election, have been extremely difficult for our community in so many ways. Regardless of the outcome of this historic election, YWCA New Britain remains committed to our core values and to our mission of eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
These next couple of days are likely to be filled with uncertainty, misinformation, and unrest. We encourage you to lean on those around you for support and to offer support to others as you can, as we all try to navigate this unprecedented time.
This is history unfolding, and though we cannot change the outcome of some things, there are many things we can control - our actions, our beliefs, and the extent of our love and kindness.
Please stay safe and know that we are here, waiting and watching along with you. We will continue to raise our voice and the voices of girls, women, and people of color to demand racial and gender equity regardless of who holds power.
