Courageous Conversations

Courageous Conversations

Since 2018, YWCA National Capital Area has held community-based discussions called Courageous Conversations.  These discussions have explored the dynamics of race, bias, gender, and inequity in a unique community-driven way, empowering people to take an active role in dismantling racism, demanding equity, and standing up for justice.

Now more than ever, we invite you to join us for these dynamic community events as we believe we are stronger together in the work to eliminate racism and empower women.
