THANK YOU to our Program Sponsor:

This program is made possible through a generous grant from the YWCA of Pittsburgh, a dedicated organization committed to empowering individuals and businesses in our community.

YWCA Greater Pittsburgh is a member of a nationally recognized movement with a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

For more than 160 years, YWCAs have positioned themselves at the forefront of the most pressing social movements. They have advocated for voting rights, civil rights, and violence protection; fought for affordable housing and pay equity; and championed health care reform. Today, YWCAs combine services and advocacy to foster change in three key areas: racial justice and civil rights, economic advancement and empowerment for women and girls, and health and safety for women and girls.

They understand that racial and economic equity are inseparable from women’s empowerment. Women and girls of color face daily discrimination and social injustice. They are more likely to experience gender-based violence, and they face more barriers to quality care. Women of color are often their families’ primary source of income, yet many lack access to childcare, safe housing, and health care.

In response, they offer accessible child care, after school STEM education for girls, the YWCA Resource Center, supportive housing, and our Center for Race and Gender Equity. All of our programs are designed to empower the individuals that they serve educationally, socially, and economically.
