“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, hate and violence strike against the very core of the YMCA’s Mission that everyone is entitled to build a healthy Spirit, Mind, and Body. At the Ocean County YMCA, we stand with all our neighbors as ONE to seek justice, unity, peace, and the eradication of systemic racism.”
At the Ocean County YMCA, we believe our communities are stronger when everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Our policies, practices and programs must advance our organizational commitment to diversity and inclusion. We must sustain our support for newcomers and immigrants, in partnership with our colleagues at Ys in 120 countries. We must ensure all people – across all dimensions of diversity – feel welcome and valued as part of the Y family.
