YWCA Links With Wendi Thomas' Common Ground Group

Posted By on Thu, Mar 24, 2011 at 10:58 AM


The YWCA of Greater Memphis announced a merger with Commercial Appeal columnist Wendi Thomas' Common Ground race relations group.

"Common Ground: Conversations on Race, Communities in Action" was founded in 2008 by Thomas to bring together diverse Memphis residents for discussion on how to bridge the city's racial divide. More than 1,500 Memphis residents have participated in Common Ground over the last three years. After the merger, Common Ground will become part of the YWCA's existing Racial Justice program.

Common Ground meetings occur every Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Kingsbury High School through April 26th.
