Join YWCA Spokane in marching for the rights and equality of all people! Members of our organization will be marching to show our support of promoting peace, justice, dignity, and freedom for all.
Along with marching, our Community Education and Outreach Coordinator, Nicole Nimens, along with other YWCA Spokane advocates will be present to teach about our mission of eliminating racism, empowering women, and creating a safe and healthy community for all people. We will have materials for people of all age groups, and are happy to provide any resources needed. Stop by our booth and speak with an advocate about the ways you can help end violence in our community, about teaching kiddos principles of healthy relationships, or simply to learn more about our mission!

Women+s March 2019 Mission Statement:
In alignment with the National Women’s March platform, we adopt the unity principles related to Reproductive Rights, LGBTQIA Rights, Workers’ Rights, Civil Rights, Disability Rights, Immigration Rights, Environmental Justice, and Ending Violence.
To support and honor these principles, Women+s March Spokane endeavors to harness the power of diverse women in our community to create transformative social change; promote civil rights for every human regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, ability, religion, housing or economic status; amplify the work of community leaders and organizations to educate, mobilize, dialogue and engage our community in collective action to advance justice, equity, freedom, and inclusion.
This MLK Day Weekend is full of ways to celebrate! First, on Saturday, January 19th, the MLK Family Outreach Center is hosting a Day of Service to prepare hygiene kits and host a canned food drive to benefit members of the community in need. Sunday’s celebration will be a Day of Fellowship to reflect on all that Dr. King and those involved in his mission did to benefit this country. Lastly, Monday will feature the MLK Day March and Resource Fair, where the community will be marching in support of Dr. King’s mission to advance the rights of African-Americans in the U.S., and to promote our mission of eliminating racism in our community.
Please join YWCA Spokane at the MLK Day March and Resource Fair! First, march with us to show support of African-Americans in our community and advancing the rights of those oppressed in our country. After the March, please come see us at the Resource Fair! Our Community Education and Outreach Coordinator, Nicole Nimens, along with other YWCA Spokane Advocates will be present to teach the community about our Racial and Social Justice work. Come learn how you can become involved in our mission, whether it be hosting a training at work or simply becoming more educated on these issues. We hope to see you there!
