No Place for Hate

We partnered with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to ensure the YMCA is inclusive and available for everyone. In 2022, our branch earned No Place for Hate accreditation through the ADL.

The accreditation comes after a year-long initiative to ensure inclusion in all facets of our YMCA. The initiative was made up of events, pledges, celebrations, and daily acts of acceptance and inclusion.

We welcome our neighbors of all races, genders, and abilities at the Y. We pledge to continue to ensure the Y is inclusive, accepting, and a place for all people.
