YW ACT is a community driven, advocacy focused leadership program designed to give community members the skills and opportunity to lead, organize and plan advocacy efforts of the YWCA of Greater Portland. Organized into three committees: Legislative Action, Community Outreach, and Advocacy Communications, these committees champion issues and legislative actions to help the YWCA achieve its mission of eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

Committees meet the 2nd Thursday of each month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at the Southeast Multicultural Center (4610 SE Belmont St, Portland OR 97215).

If you are interested in joining YW ACT or attending a meeting to learn more, please consider joining us at our next meeting on April 13, 2017.
