For the past five years the Greenwich YWCA has been part of a national movement to "Stand Against Racism". 

"What we are focusing on this year is racial profiling," said YWCA President and CEO Adrianne Singer. 

Members of the government  gathered to declare this day the Sixth annual "Stand Against Racism day" in the Town. 

"They organize an event for the community to highlight and recommit us tot he fight against racism," said Congressman Jim Himes. 

There are over 70 participating organizations around Greenwich, including the public schools. 

"Each one will choose a program for themselves focused on racial justice and ending racism," said Singer. 

The YWCA's "Stand Against Racism" event also falls on the same day as the Armenian Flag Raising at Town Hall to Remember the 1.5 million people killed 100 years ago.
