SEATTLE– This September, YWCA brings keynote speaker Valerie Jarrett (author & former White House advisor) to their first fully digital Luncheon. Co-hosted by Hollis Wong-Wear (musician & community advocate) and Elisa Jaffe (KOMO News Radio), this event recognizes and celebrates Women Rising Boldly – those who have used their voices and power to shape their communities and to uplift women and girls. The program will feature the personal story of a YWCA program participant, highlights of YWCA’s frontline services during this crucial time, and a moderated conversation with Valerie Jarrett.

Attendees from across the country can join in community for a lively celebration of the strength, resilience, and boldness of the women YWCA supports.
