YWCA USA Capitol Hill Day 2011

 April 7, 2011 was the YWCA USA Capitol Hill Day where YWCA of Rockford’s CEO, Kris Kieper, and Board President, Karen Brown, along with many other YWCA Executive Directors, Board Members and other organizational leaders were in Washington to speak up for women and families. YWCA Advocates urged their members of Congress to make funding available for programs and services that help prioritize women and children in the fiscal year 2011 and fiscal year 2012 appropriations process. Their face-to-face meetings with Congress brought a clear message, “do not balance the budget and reduce the deficit by cutting programs that provide a lifeline to women, children, and struggling families”.
