No Time For Silence!!!

Message from our President and CEO, Steve Jobin

June 3, 2020

Fear of saying the wrong things can sometimes prevent us from saying the right things- this is no time for silence.

WE need to do BETTER!!!

At the center of the YMCA’s international logo is a verse of Christian scripture, John 17:21 - “that they all may be ONE…”

Systemic racism strikes against the very core of the YMCA’s Mission that everyone is entitled to build a healthy Spirit, Mind, and Body.

At the Raritan Bay Area YMCA, we stand with all our neighbors as ONE to seek justice, unity, peace, and the eradication of systemic racism.

To that end, we encourage community members to join a peaceful rally/march organized by Perth Amboy youth. The rally will start at Perth Amboy High School at 1:00pm on Saturday, June 6th, and make its way to City Hall.

We continue to pray for George Floyd and his family.
