Inspire Luncheons

For over three decades, YWCA’s Inspire Luncheons have brought people together to celebrate our mission and learn how our programs change lives. With your support, our work continues.

YWCA is on a mission to eliminate racism and empower women. Our 2021 Inspire Luncheon is going virtual again on September 14 and it will be one to remember. We’re proud to announce that this year’s keynote speaker is…Stacey Abrams!

Stacey Abrams
Registration is open at all ticket levels

Abrams is a political leader, lawyer, and New York Times bestselling author. In 2018, she made history as the first Black woman to become the gubernatorial nominee for a major party in any state. She’s continued to make headlines since, leading the fight for voting rights in Georgia and across the country.

In March 2021, Abrams received the NAACP’s first-ever Social Justice Impact award. She was named one of the “World’s Most Powerful Women in 2020” by Forbes, and nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for her work to promote civil rights and voter engagement during the 2020 elections in Georgia.

Registration is now open at all ticket levels for our Luncheon on September 14.

Funds raised from ticket sales and donations 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.
