The 2022 Washington State Legislative Session is just kicking off and our elected officials will soon be voting on laws that have a tremendous impact on the lives of the women YWCA serves. Join YWCA's GenRising and Firesteel on February 8 to learn how you can continue building community support for racial justice in 2022 and push for changes that will bring women and BIPOC communities closer to equity.

This year's legislative session is still being held virtually, which is both an opportunity and challenge to ensuring the voices of women, especially Black women and women of color, are heard by our decision makers.
