Monday, December 17 is the Hope for the Holidays donation turn-in day! All gifts are welcome prior to this day, and please contact departments if this turn-in date is difficult for you to meet. We are happy to be flexible!
YWCA Spokane is excited to provide our community with an opportunity to engage with this year’s adopt-a-family wish-list program called Hope for The Holidays. Thank you for helping to celebrate the spirit of giving by sponsoring a family and making this season a little brighter for those we serve who are impacted by domestic violence, homelessness, and unemployment.
To accommodate the many different needs of families through our varied programs, each department will be holding their own drive. Please deliver all gifts to YWCA Spokane (930 N Monroe) by December 17. If you cannot deliver gifts and need assistance, please contact the lead for the program you are donating to.
Join YWCA Spokane on Monday, February 11th, 2019 at Gonzaga’s Hemmingson Center as Jackson Katz explores the growing global movement of men working to promote gender equality and prevent gender violence.
He is the creator, lead writer, and narrator of the award-winning Tough Guise videos. His TED talk, “Violence Against Women-it’s a Men’s Issue,” has been viewed more than three and a half (3.5) million times.
He has published numerous academic and journalistic articles on topics as far-ranging as the social justice and feminist roots of the bystander approach to sexual assault prevention, the powerful role of athletics in gender violence prevention, the gender and sexual politics of Eminem’s songs, the gender politics of conservative talk radio, violent white masculinity in advertising, juvenile detention, pornography, and sports metaphors in presidential politics.
This event is brought to you through YWCA Spokane’s GoodGuys efforts. Learn more about this growing local movement of men in Spokane who recognize domestic violence as a community issue, not a women’s issue.
