On a cold December evening in 1955, Rosa Parks quietly incited a revolution, by just sitting down. She was tired after spending the day at work as a department store seamstress. She stepped onto the bus for the ride home and sat in the fifth row, the first row of the “Colored Section.”
On this cold February day in 2021 in Adams County, the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County is asking you to “stand up” for social justice and become a Mission Member, showing your support for our basic, but essential, mission of “eliminating racism, empowering women.” Our goal is to have 1,000 Mission Members by March 1. Our stretch goal is to have 2,100 Mission Members by the end of our 21 Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge on March 29.
