We need your support more than ever

This pandemic is exacerbating the compounding influences of gender, race, and income inequality.

Here, a senior discovers her own power to advocate for her independence. Here, people of color learn to navigate the systems designed to hold them back. Here, a young woman cracks the glass ceiling to achieve the promotion she’s earned.

Their victories make our eyes shine brighter. They keep our commitment to justice strong, because we know first-hand how much more work we must get up and do.

YWCA’s mission is to eliminate racism and empower women. We will get up and do the work until injustice is rooted out, until institutions are transformed, until the world sees women, girls, and people of color the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.

In 2021 we are very excited to celebrate Legacy Leadership, taking a look back over the past 26 years of Tribute to Leadership honorees.

YWCA’s Tribute to Leadership Luncheon and Awards event has been an annual celebration to recognize the accomplishments of leaders in our community who strive to improve the lives of women, girls, and people of color through leadership, advocacy, and community service.

We have re-imagined this year’s event as a virtual month-long celebration to reflect on 26 years of phenomenal Legacy honorees. This celebration will culminate with a virtual luncheon on March 31st, to come together to celebrate their continued legacy of leadership and commitment to racial and gender justice, and to raise funds that are critical for us to stay resilient and stay strong for those we serve.

March is Women’s History Month
We are shining the spotlight on our Legacy honorees every day to learn what amazing things they are up to now and share digitally on our social media platforms.
