Our inaugural in-district Advocacy Day on August 17 was a huge success! On social media we saw 340 Tweets and 190 Facebook posts! Moreover, these were engaging posts that used #YWCAday, sharegraphics, and photos as well as Member’s Twitter handles.

YWCA Brooklyn joined the 100 YWCA local associations in meeting with 60 Senators and 84 Congressional Representatives across 40 states to advocate for the Healthy Families Act, the FAMILY Act, and the SAFE Act! We met with Congressman Hakeem Jeffries and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

We’re lucky to have support from our official on policies that promote the economic empowerment and safety of women and families. Thank you for helping YWCA in our mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities.
