Social Justice Advocacy

YWCAs have been at the forefront of advocating for social change for decades. The women of the YWCA played a critical role in major movements for women’s suffrage, desegregation, affordable housing, and women’s rights. Today, we build on that legacy, continuing to advocate for justice and equity at the intersections of race and gender.

Public Policy Priorities

We advocate for changes at the local, state, and federal levels that bring our mission to life.
