YWCA Spokane에서 우리는 여성, 남성, 아동 및 가족에게 무료로 비밀이 보장되는 프로그램과 서비스를 제공할 뿐만 아니라 커뮤니티 내에서 인종 및 사회 정의 노력을 지원하고 고양하고 옳은 일을 위한 목소리를 내는 데 전념하고 있습니다. 공정하고 정의로운.

우리는 인종 평등과 사회 정의를 위해 헌신합니다. 우리는 형평성, 기회 및 인간의 품위가 있는 세상을 꿈꿉니다. 우리는 일어나서 불의가 뿌리 뽑힐 때까지, 제도가 변할 때까지, 그리고 세상이 우리가 하는 방식으로 여성, 소녀, 유색인종을 볼 때까지 계속 일할 것입니다. 동일한. 강한. 멈출 수 없습니다.

여성과 지역 사회의 필요가 시간이 지남에 따라 진화함에 따라 YWCA Spokane의 작업도 진화할 것입니다. 우리는 정의가 정의가 될 때까지 모든 사람을 위한 안전, 보안, 경제적, 인종적 정의를 만들기 위해 계속 노력할 것입니다.


the History

YWCA’s commitment to racial justice and civil rights runs deep. Since the 1800s, Black and Native women have been providing leadership in YWCA’s national movement. It’s because of their leadership that YWCA USA began working for integration in 1946 throughout the organization, adopting an ‘interracial charter’ that established that “wherever there is injustice on the basis of race, whether in the community, the nation, or the world, our protest must be clear and our labor for its removal, vigorous, and steady.” That work culminated in the creation of YWCA’s One Imperative in 1970: To thrust our collective power towards the elimination of racism, wherever it exists, by any means necessary.

Today, there are more than 200 YWCA agencies across the nation. We remain committed to ensuring everyone is afforded equal protection under the law. Our intersectional mission to eliminate racism and empower women demands that we advocate against the oppression too many groups and individuals endure. We recognize the interconnected experiences of discrimination and disadvantage that women face from their overlapping identities. 

1903년부터 YWCA Spokane은 여성과 어린이가 목표를 달성하고 더 건강하고 만족스러운 삶을 살기 위해 사회적, 경제적, 개인적 장벽을 극복하도록 돕고 있습니다. 오늘날 초점 영역에는 친밀한 파트너 가정 폭력의 피해자 지원, 유아 교육 촉진, 고객과 커뮤니티에 부정적인 영향을 미치는 인종 및 사회 정의 문제에 대한 대처가 포함됩니다. 불평등, 빈곤, 가정 폭력의 교차점에서 일함으로써 YWCA Spokane은 오랜 사회적 트라우마 패턴을 깨뜨릴 수 있습니다.
