stand against racism

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) – The City of Niagara Falls is taking a stand against racism. Mayor Paul Dyster and other community leaders are hosting a stand against racism event at 11 a.m. Friday at Niagara Falls City Hall.

It’s part of a nationwide movement that the YWCA started in 2008.

It aims to raise awareness that racism still exists in our communities and should no longer be ignored or tolerated.
