Mobilizing Women Voters
The YWCA USA offers a comprehensive 2012 voter resource website,www.ywcavote.org, to help educate all voters, especially women and people of color, about the key issues and candidates in this upcoming election.
YWCAvote.org provides detailed information, including downloadable guides, on issues key to this election, voter registration, candidate and election information, and opportunities for people become active participants.
"We want to provide a one-stop site where voters could go to learn about the issues, locate resources, register to vote and find out who's running for national and statewide office," says Gloria Lau, YWCA USA's CEO. Lau adds, "With our partners such as League of Women Voters and AAUW (American Association of University Women), the YWCA is working hard to ensure that women, the elderly and people of color are fully enfranchised and can participate in our democracy by knowing how to register and where to vote.” Read Lau’s full statement on our press release.
YWCA USA is a member of HERvotes, a coalition of leading women's organizations focused on mobilizing women voters in 2012 around preserving women's Health and Economic rights (HERrights.)
