Advocacy

Social Action and Advocacy are the cornerstones of the YWCA USA. Since our inception almost 150 years ago, “service” has been linked to “action.” In communities across the United States, YWCA USAs continue to work to improve social and economic conditions for all people. As the nation’s oldest and largest national movement, the YWCA USA is comprised of over 300 local associations, regional leadership and a national office in Washington D.C. who all work together, across the nation work to strengthen our voices in the nation’s capital and in state and local governments. The YWCA USA brings firsthand knowledge of how federal level policies and programs affect women, girls and their families in communities across the country. Historically the YWCA USA has fought for issues such as the abolition of child labor, the 8-hour workday and desegregation. Today, the YWCA USA carries on their long tradition in social action and advocacy to meet the twin goals of women and girl’s empowerment and racial justice.
