YWCA highlights work being done to promote racial harmony in Wilmington

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - With concerns over racial tensions in the aftermath of the sniper shootings of police officers in Dallas and the deaths of two black men killed by police officers this week that were captured on video, leaders of the YWCA Lower Cape Fear are talking about the work being done in our community to fight racism.

Evelyn Bryant, a board member with the YWCA, joined us on WECT News First at Four to talk about what the group is doing to promote racial harmony in our community.

The YWCA hosts Stand against Racism even each year in April.

Additionally, the Potluck for Peace, held every three months, encourages the community to come together and talk about issues such as racism.

The next Potluck for Peace is at 6:00 p.m. on July 21 at the YWCA Lower Cape Fear at 2815 South College Road.
