JOIN US FOR A WEEK WITHOUT VIOLENCE

For more than 20 years, YWCA has set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence—a week when YWCAs join as part of a global movement with World YWCA to end violence against women and girls.

Join us during our annual Week Without Violence as we do the work to raise awareness and advocate for the accessible, effective, and consistent resources that survivors and communities need to build the flourishing futures they deserve. We will be joined by various activists throughout the week to learn how to advocate for survivors, the resources they have in Phoenix, and how to create real change to end gender-based violence.
