Established in 1858 as a voice for women’s issues, YWCA USA opened the first employment bureau for women several years later. That was only the beginning of 160 years of active advocacy and programming for women’s rights and civil rights. We continue to evolve to meet today’s challenges in eliminating racism and empowering women. We’ve shifted to a bottoms-up, grassroots structure. We’ve launched a revitalized brand that reaffirms the mission of working aggressively for women and people of color. And we’re actively engaging young women to carry on the YWCA mission for years to come.
YWCA USA focuses on three priority areas:
- Racial justice and civil rights
- Empowerment and economic advancement of women and girls
- Health and safety of women and girls
