Our Work

YWCA Greater Cincinnati advocates on public policy that directly advances our mission and vision and clearly promotes our three signature platforms, which are Racial Justice & Civil Rights, Safety of Women and Girls, Empowerment & Economic Advancement of Women & Girls

Priority Areas:

Racial Justice

Current events have exposed the vast inequities that continue to exist in our nation.  Racial disparities are increasing and further divide us. This is the most critical issue facing us today. We’re at a turning point in our nation that requires all of us to advocate for change.

Violence Against Women

Violence against women and girls continues to threaten the safety and wellbeing of our community. There has never been a more urgent time to challenge long-held policies that continue to perpetuate the cycle of abuse.

How You Can Help Advocate

If you have a passion for these issues, you can make a difference right now in our community and nationally.

First, stay informed by accessing the information on key issues via our social media sites.

Second, sign up to receive Advocacy Alerts from our agency.

Both of these will provide opportunities to make your voice heard whether it is speaking at a local city council meeting, being a part of a community conversation or event, or writing your legislators to impact policy. We all have our ‘circle of influence’ that we can expand our passion for issues by educating and engaging our friends, family, and neighborhoods through our own social media outlets, church, school, and other community groups.
