During yesterday’s Activists and Agitators event, a statement was made that was harmful to our local Jewish community and the Bexley community. YWCA Columbus apologizes for the pain this comment has caused, and we accept responsibility for the harm inflicted.
We have redacted that portion of the event video so the statement is not repeated, are restoratively engaging with the parties involved, and are continuing conversations with members of the Jewish community to begin repairing any harm inflicted. YWCA Columbus believes that words carry immense power. We commit to doing better for ALL in our community.
