YWCA advocates for policies that advance our mission by highlighting the experiences and lifting up the voices of women and people of color in our community.

By focusing not on blame but on institutional bias and discrimination, we build a movement for an equitable future for all by targeting racial and gender disparities. We work upstream to eliminate the systemic causes of oppression which necessitate our services at YWCA. You can join us and advocate for a future where all women and their families can thrive.
