YWCA Election Guide

The YWCA’s programs put our mission into action: to eliminate racism; empower women; and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. As a voice of those too often marginalized in our communities, we have a moral imperative to speak up about public policies and laws that will directly influence achievement of our mission. This year’s ballot has two initiatives and one bond measure that, if passed, will directly and nearly immediately do just that. That is why the YWCA has endorsed these measures.
