In honor of Black History Month, we are highlighting a few trailblazing women from Washington State who have strengthened our region through their economic, social, political, and civic work. These women, and many others, were exceptional, inspirational, and fearless in ensuring that we have the rights we engage in today. For that, we thank them.
Service learning opportunities offer many advantages to students, especially those implicated by educational inequalities. These opportunities help students like those at Renton High School overcome obstacles and set them on track to success after they graduate.

For 125 years, YWCA has worked towards creating an inclusive and thriving community transformed by racial and gender equity, with peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all people.
