Equity Resources

OUR ROLE

Here at the Y, our mission is to create positive community change through relationships by empowering the mind, body, and spirit for ALL. Our Y will continue our journey toward creating a more inclusive and equitable Skagit through education and the amplification of Black, brown, and other underrepresented voices within our community.

Each and every member of our Y Family has the opportunity to be a steward of the Y’s mission for inclusion and equity for ALL. We invite you to join us in our journey as we continue to partner with other nonprofits and our Skagit community to be a socially responsible organization that creates positive change.

Our team has compiled a series of resources for anyone looking to learn more about equity as we all work together to create a stronger community that is welcoming to all.

COVID-19 Vaccine Information

As the COVID-19 vaccines begin reaching the broader population, the Y is working to ensure that everyone has equitable access to accurate information about the vaccines and to the vaccines themselves, especially Black and Brown communities, which have been disproportionately affected by the health and economic impacts of the virus.
