2021 Chalk Walk | Photo Gallery

Wednesday, October 6th, in partnership with Riverfront Spokane, our team at YWCA Spokane held a Chalk Walk event in the park downtown as our kickoff for Domestic Violence Action Month. During this national month of advocacy, join YWCA Spokane in our goals to Increase Awareness, Inspire Action and Raise $50,000 In Critical Funds For Survivors.


It’s not too late to get involved with Chalk Walk! You can also participate from your home or work. Using your own sidewalk and chalk, you can help shine a light for survivors across our community. We would love to see your art and messages, so be sure to share online with #PaintSpokanePurple and #ywcadvam!

We are so grateful for the opportunity to spread awareness about this critical issue in our city while also sharing inspirational messages to let survivors know they are not alone. Sign up below to receive a complimentary kit of DVAM swag for your place of work!
