Featuring Valerie Jarrett, author and former White House advisor. Join thousands of community members in experiencing stories of strength and perseverance from women in our region.

Hear the stories of YWCA program participants who share how barriers like homelessness, domestic violence, joblessness, or inequity are transformed through donor-funded programs and services. Our keynote speaker for 2020 is author and former White House advisor, Valerie Jarrett. Past Luncheon keynote speakers have included Maya Angelou, Gloria Steinem, Viola Davis, and Alfre Woodard.

Funds raised help YWCA continue to provide and expand programs that reduce disparities based on race, gender, sexual orientation, and economic status; increase economic opportunities, and improve health and safety for women, children, and families.

Your participation at our Luncheons makes all of this possible.
