Categories: Archival, WRJB



(May 21, 2019) The YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley is accepting nominations for the Racial Justice Award, to be presented at this year’s 15th Annual Women for Racial Justice Breakfast. On Monday, October 28ND, 2019, the YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley will host the 15th Annual Women for Racial Justice Breakfast. The event is scheduled from 8:00 – 10:00 am, and will be held at the Pasadena Hilton Hotel, located at 168 S. Los Robles Ave in Pasadena, CA.


This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize a woman, business, or organization that has actively been working to end racism and further racial harmony and inclusiveness. The theme for this year is “Lifting As We Climb” and the YWCA is calling for nominees who have made significant improvements to the lives of women of color.


Since 2002, the YWCA’s Women for Racial Justice Breakfast has brought together over 500 of Pasadena’s most influential members of the business, civic, and philanthropic communities to share in our efforts to promote and support racial justice. This inspirational event also recognizes a local individual, business, or community organization for their accomplishments toward eradicating racism and inequality. Come celebrate our differences and be a part of our continued work towards racial justice.


If you would like to nominate an individual, business, or organization, please contact Jessica Kubel, Executive Director, at 626-296-8433, or via email at jkubel@ywca-pasadena.org.  Nomination forms can also be found at bit.ly/2019rjaward and at the YWCA website: www.ywca-pasadena.org.  Nominations must be received no later than June 7th, 2019.
