YWCA Southeast Wisconsin Racial Justice Book Club 

YWCA Southeast Wisconsin (SEW) presents its inaugural Racial Justice Book Club series, in partnership with the Racine Public Library, on October 17, November 14 and December 12, Racine residents are invited to participate in a community dialogue about the Pulitzer Prize winning book, “Evicted” by Matthew Desmond. The series will be held at 6:00 p.m. at the Racine Public Library, 75 7th Street, Racine, WI 53403.

The first twelve community members to register online for the “Evicted” book club series will receive a free copy of the book. Session one will cover part one of the book, the second discussion will focus on part two and the group will close the series by discussing part three and the epilogue.

The purpose of the series is to bring awareness to YWCA SEW’s current programming initiatives, while also supporting the Racine community’s commitment to racial justice. “Evicted” highlights the issue of evictions and its intersection with race and class illustrated by stories from Milwaukee, WI.
