Black Lives Matter

YMCA Scotland stands in solidarity with others in denouncing prejudice, racism, intolerance and all forms of discrimination.

Black Lives Matter! By stating this, we are not lessening the value of other lives. It is a recognition that in the past and in the present racism has resulted in unequal opportunities, education, wealth and health outcomes. It is a call for equality, equity and justice for all. If Black lives don’t matter, all lives don’t matter.

YMCA is an inclusive Christian youth organisation, open to people of all faiths and none. We seek to work with all in a non-judgemental and supportive manner, empowering all young people to create positive change in their lives and communities.
