Community leaders came together today to stand up against racism.
It's an annual initiative where local companies and community organizations come together to raise awareness about racism.
Several events have been scheduled at a number of locations throughout our area in support of the "Stand Up Against Racism" campaign.
The events include everything from a dance performance at the Mall at Greece Ridge to a poetry slam and a racial justice workshop being held at the Downtown United Presbyterian Church.
Nearly 200 community groups are taking part in today's events.
