YWCA's Advocacy Roots The YWCA has a long and rich history of advocating for policies that improve the lives of women, girls, low-income individuals and families, and communities of color. For 150 years, the YWCA has demonstrated its strength and credibility as a movement for social change and justice. The YWCA's advocacy and activism are directly rooted in its direct service to local communities with a robust legacy of supporting progressive racial justice and civil rights. Ahead of its time, the YWCA opposed racial segregation, lobbied for the elimination of the voting poll tax, and supported fair employment practices.
