(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The YWCA hosted its 11th annual "Stand Against Racism" event to raise awareness and build community support for those that work to eliminate racial injustice.

The event is designed to create conversation, for all ages and professions, around institutional and structural racism and how these conditions contribute to a negative impact on members of the community. 

After reading a city proclimation fighting racism and supporting equality for all citizens,  Mayor Bill McMurry  said, "America has a whole history of being unfair to various groups of people. It's important to all of us to remind ourselves, even attitudes that we don't realize that we have, that we need to be fair. We need to judge people of the content of their charecter as Dr. King said."

It was a pleasant start to the weekend with sunny skies and temperatures reaching the mid 60s. A cold front moving through the area will bring us down into the 30s for lows overnight with gusty winds up to 20 mph. This will keep our highs in the 50s on Sunday under mostly sunny skies with mild winds from the southwest. Temperatures will quickly start to warm up again on Monday with highs in the mid 60s. Rain chances look to stay minimal into next week. Temperatures are forecasted to stay above average for the first day of December on Wednesday.
