Stand Against Racism event planned in Falls

NIAGARA FALLS – An event corresponding with the 2014 Stand Against Racism will be held in Council Chambers in City Hall, 745 Main St., at 11 a.m. Friday.

The event, sponsored by Mayor Paul A. Dyster and City Administrator Donna D. Owens, will feature speakers on the issue and a recitation of a pledge against racism. Residents and community leaders are invited to attend.

The Stand Against Racism was started by the YWCA in 2008 to raise awareness that racism still exists and should no longer be ignored or tolerated.
