As part of YWCA's Week Without Violence, we're highlighting our program Survivors FIRST (Facilitating Interventions & Resources for Survivors of Trauma), a partnership between YWCA and the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office (KCPAO) that identifies justice-involved survivors of gender-based violence and connects them to culturally specific services at YWCA.
YWCA held our second virtual Luncheon on September 14 with over 1,200 supporters in attendance. Thank you for coming together to reclaim our power and help us raise over $1 million in support of women and families in our region.
Our 2021 YWCA Inspire Luncheon keynote speaker Stacey Abrams has committed her life to protecting the freedom to vote for every eligible American, because voting is about more than engagement – it’s an act of power.
