Racine YWCA, NAACP to Merge
OK, I lied. They aren't planning a merger, not that I know of anyway. But maybe they should. The recent news of the YWCA closing its fitness center due to declining membership, coupled with the their newish focus on combating racism, leads me to think that a merger might be sensible. The NAACP is of course also very much focused on combating racism, and I suspect they could use additional members and resources. The two organizations appear to have remarkably similar agendas. Why not merge?
