Our Advocacy Agenda

We believe in a world free from inequities. We accomplish this through our advocacy agenda. YWCA has been at the forefront of the most pressing social movements for 160 years. Because structural and institutional racism and raise additional barriers for women and girls of color seeking justice, economic opportunity, and safety, YWCA centers the safety and full equality of women and girls of color in our work.

Our 2020-2021 Advocacy Agenda :

Legislative Priorities in the 117th Congress

  • Strengthen the nonprofit sector’s ability to respond to the COVID-19 crisis
  • Ensure safe, fair, and inclusive workplaces that expand opportunities for women, women of color, LGBTQ+ people, and historically marginalized communities
