As protests against systemic racism sweep the country, many companies are looking beyond issuing statements of solidarity or making one-off donations to the cause.

They want to create a lasting change within society—and within themselves.

We Can Help.

Introducing the Racial Justice League.

Led by YWCA Metropolitan Chicago, the League comprises individuals and organizations who:

Take a pledge to advance racial justice in their companies, communities, and/or industries.

Make a donation to the YWCA that supports early childhood education, trauma intervention, skills training, job placement, and small-business development programs. Donate online now or contact us to discuss partnership opportunities.

Commit to specific, tangible actions, like rethinking value chains to benefit more people of color, reforming hiring processes, and educating employees on how to contribute to anti-racism efforts. View resources.


From Day 1, League members make an impact.

Your contributions will fund on-the-ground services that assist tens of thousands of Chicagoans each year. Plus, you’ll receive YWCA’s support in becoming truly anti-racist—in how you run your business; recruit, train, and support employees; invest in your community; and more.

Make a donation or contact us to learn more about the League.
