Chas,SC- “Stand Together Acclaim A New Day” (S.T.A.N.D.), April 24-27, will offer workshops, a panel discussion and a major outdoor rally focused on building support for civil and human rights causes. The YWCA Greater Charleston is sponsoring the four-day series with the backing of area organizations including The Women’s Center, National Council of Negro Women Charleston Chapter, Zonta Club of Charleston and the ACLU – South Carolina.

S.T.A.N.D. is an outgrowth of the National YWCA’s “Stand Against Racism” movement which began in 2007 and drew some 250,000 supporters to outdoor rallies held nationwide last April. The Charleston rally is set for Friday, April 26 at the YWCA, 106 Coming Street, 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. including speeches, music and food, a poetry slam, drummers and dance. At 4:30 p.m. rally goers will form a human-chain demonstration along Calhoun Street between St. Philip and Coming streets, across from the College of Charleston. The rally is open to the public and admission free.  Click here to read more...
