Roycemore News From The Past Month

Race Against Hate

June 9, 2020

 

We are proud to continue our support for the Evanston YWCA’s annual Race Against Hate. This longstanding tradition in Evanston honors the legacy of Ricky Byrdsong, who was murdered by a white supremacist in Skokie while walking with his children, and bring awareness to antiracist causes. Roycemore has been a regular sponsor and has a team that participates yearly in this event. Although we will not be able to gather for the race, there are still ways our Roycemore community can support. 
 
1. You can  “Race in Place”  anytime between June 1st and June 21st.
2. You can attend a  virtual event  and engage in community conversations about race.
3. You can donate to the  Race Against Hate .
