Dear Social Justice Forum Participant,
We were so pleased to have you join our Racism Workshop last Wednesday, March 24th led by the Westchester Youth Alliance and Peekskill Youth NAACP. It was a completely youth-planned, led, and hosted event and we are so proud of all the hard work they put into it. Your input, thoughtful comments and insights as participants were also what made the night so special! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, and welcome any and all feedback.
This workshop was quite indicative of some of the work we do here at Westchester Youth Alliance. Our mission is to build bridges across our diverse communities of faith, race and identity through dialogue and service to strive for justice and understanding. We welcome all youth from any and all backgrounds, and are always looking to expand our reach in the community. If you are a youth living in Westchester we would love to have you join! Alternatively, if your child/grandchild/youths you know in the community might be interested in joining, please have them contact us!
We also have room for not just young people, but adults as well. We have an amazing board that we are always looking to add to, in addition to many mentorship and volunteer opportunities available. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to get involved.
You can follow our work at Westchester Youth Alliance, via our instagram @wya_ny, and on our facebook page Westchester Youth Alliance! If you so feel inclined to donate to our cause, you can support us at this link: Support Us — Westchester Youth Alliance. Any and all donations are incredibly appreciated.
We were also so lucky to partner with Peekskill Youth NAACP for this workshop. We hope to continue working with them in the future in growing and building our relationship. If you would like to contact them, you can email [email protected] or [email protected]. You can also follow them on their website Peekskill NAACP and on their instagram @

Thank you for being a supportive, active member of the Westchester community. We hope that you decide to become involved in WYA. We really would LOVE to have you! Please tell your friends and family about our work as well as Peekskill Youth NAACP. The more people we reach, the more community building, justice-related work we can do to make this world better; but only with your help!
We look forward to staying in touch and hearing from you.
The Westchester Youth Alliance Leadership Team
