Board Statement On Racial & Social Justice
Eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all is the Mission of the YWCA. As we witness the suffering in our community and our nation, we at YWCA Spokane continue to turn to our mission for guidance. While most are familiar with the exceptional work that the YWCA does to serve victims of domestic violence and families living in poverty, fewer are familiar with the social justice lens of our work.
YWCA Spokane’s board of directors encourages individuals and groups to move through the 14-day equity challenge. This challenge is accessible to anyone interested in learning more about racial equity and social justice and examining these issues in our own communities. This is an exciting opportunity to dive deeper into racial equity and social justice. We hope you’ll join us and accept this challenge.
