For Women’s History Month 2016, we compiled five facts about women’s rights.
Eliminating Racism and Empowering Women.
The YWCA of Greater Portland’s mission is to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
The increased attention to domestic violence across the country has led to an increase in demand for victim services. At the same time, many of these programs are experiencing stagnant or reduced funding, which limits their ability to serve more victims.
The YWCA of Greater Portland hosted a gun violence discussion with Oregon leaders and former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords for a roundtable discussion on the need for more laws to protect communities from gun violence.
Culture of Gendered Violence offers an exploration of the historical and cultural causes of violence against women.
This training will explore formation of gender identity, gender expression and the impact it can have on family
dynamics when the child or youth is gender nonconforming or transgender.
Survivors of Intimate Partner Sexual Violence (IPSV) have unique needs and are often not met in the Domestic Violence or Sexual Assault systems in many communities.
