Stand Against Racism luncheon set for April 28


The YWCA of Palm Beach County’s fourth annual Stand Against Racism luncheon will be held Friday, April 28 at 11:30 a.m. in the Kravis Center’s Cohen Pavilion.

The honorary chairwoman of the event, titled “Women of Color Leading Change,” is Olympian Dr. Lucinda Williams-Adams. The luncheon will include the presentation of the YWCA’s Annual Racial Justice Awards and an address by the multifaceted Jack Brewer.

Brewer possesses a unique combination of expertise in the fields of global economic development, sports and finance through his roles as a successful entrepreneur, journalist, producer and humanitarian. CEO of the Brewer Group, a boutique investment and consulting firm, Brewer formerly played for the Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles, serving as captain of those teams.

Brewer serves as an Ambassador for Peace and Sport for the International Federation for Sustainable Development and Peace at the United Nations. Other key roles include a regular contributor to CNBC and Fox Business.

He is a graduate of the University of Minnesota, has completed Executive Business Programs at Harvard School of Business and the Wharton School of Business, and is currently pursuing his Masters in International Affairs from Columbia University.

“We are thrilled to have Mr. Brewer as our guest for this event,” said Suzanne Turner, CEO of the YWCA. “His presentation is certain to motivate individual and community action.”

“Stand Against Racism” is a national program of the YWCA with the goal of bringing together people across the country to raise awareness about racism, take steps to eliminate it, and celebrate diversity.
