What We Do

YWCA is on a mission to eliminate racism and empower women. We’ve been at the forefront of the biggest issues of the day for over 160 years , working to improve the lives of women, girls and communities of color through advocacy, local programming and services.

Today we carry out our mission in several ways:

Programming and services through local YWCA associations

Special initiatives and signature events

Advocacy and lobbying for policies that eliminate racism and empower women
