We’re All in this Together

We’re All in this Together

by Shelly McTighe-Rippengale & Mary Zoller on June 5, 2020
“We’re all in this together” is the phrase we keep hearing as the world deals with the economic hardship and health challenges of the current pandemic. NAYDO believes that the same phrase should be applied to the quest for justice and social equality so eloquently shared in the words below by Y-USA’s President and CEO Kevin Washington. In this era of social distancing required for health and safety, may we not distance ourselves from the other challenges facing our society and instead redouble our efforts in our Y work and in our personal lives to listen, to learn, to take action, and to come back stronger and better not just from the coronavirus but from the virus of hate, of prejudice and injustice that we have witnessed throughout our lives in the United States and around the world.
