We're joining YWCA USA in Standing for Reproductive Freedom at the Supreme Court
Last week, YWCA USA filed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court decision, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which will determine the future of Roe v. Wade. YWCA Evanston/North Shore stands with YWCA USA in urging the Supreme Court to protect reproductive freedom for young women and young women of color in communities across America.

Since 1973, young women have been guaranteed a constitutional right to make deeply personal and sometimes difficult decisions about their futures. Stripping away this freedom will greatly endanger the education, health, employment, economic prospects, and quality of life of young women and young women of color.
