SALT LAKE COUNTY (ABC4 News) – Several Salt Lake County community members gathered to “stand against racism.”
The event took place at the county building Friday and featured a panel to discuss how and where racism exists and takes place in today’s society.
After the panel, attendees took a pledge to commit to non-discrimination.
Mayor Jenny Wilson was also in attendance.
“So for us to continue progress toward eradicating racism, uniting fair platforms for doing business and having housing and having the safety net that we all deserve, we have to have these conversations,” said Wilson.
Stand Against Racism is a campaign that was started by the world Young Women’s Christian Association or YWCA. The Utah chapter has been participating annually since 2011.
