Fill out the Census. Register to Vote. Be Counted. Cast Your Ballot. 

Fight Injustice. Stand Against Racism.

In 2020, we are committed to making our voices heard at the ballot box, making sure all of us are counted, and fighting for equity for women, girls, and people of color.  We #StandAgainstRacism!

Join YWCA National Capital Area on Saturday, June 20 on Freedom Plaza from noon to 3 p.m. for our annual Stand Against Racism Rally, which is a signature initiative of YWCA’s across the world.

In 2020, we are focused on civic engagement and justice as we believe that you must respect our existence or expect our resistance. 

This FREE community gathering will feature art, music, activism and a chance to add your voice of commitment to our mission of eliminating racism. Check back her for programing updates.

The Urgency of Now: A Courageous Conversation on Race & Gender Equity
Jun 29 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm


Given the unprecedented moment we face as a country, this year’s luncheon will feature a Courageous Conversation, a program we hold throughout the year that brings diverse members of our community together for honest dialogue about race and gender equity. 

At this year’s event, you can look forward to participating in a dynamic community conversation, meeting girls and young women who are changing our city and the world, and supporting the ongoing work of the YWCA National Capital Area in adult education and workforce development, youth leadership and STEM education, and promoting race and gender equity.
