Week without Violence 2018

YWCA is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities. Week Without Violence is part of a global movement to end violence against women and girls with the World YWCA.

This year, we are focusing on ending gender-based violence. Gender-based violence recognizes a spectrum of violence, including but not limited to, intimate partner violence, sexual assault, trafficking, and harassment.

At YWCA, we know that not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally and that some victims go unrecognized altogether. We invite you to join us from October 15 – 19 as we share information, elevate stories, talk with policymakers, and get out the vote with a common goal in mind: together, we can end gender-based violence.

Here's what we're doing this year:
  • Hosting conversations with Teen groups about healthy relationships, dating violence, and more.
  • Making human trafficking presentations at local community colleges
  • Holding discussions with women and girls in our centers based around this topic
