(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."

We will have a chilly end to the work week. We had a nice day weather wise on Thursday but a cold front will bring cooler temperatures into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri.
