How we’re advocating for honesty in Ohio education

In this first quarter of 2022, YWCA Columbus has been hard at work, effecting positive change both through the day-to-day services we provide in this community and through our forward-looking policy work.

This issue of YGive focuses on youth development and education, and how inclusive the curriculum in public schools is for our children.

Your contributions fuel our mission and, as always, we thank you for helping us support those in need, ignite the community, and empower the next generation of change-makers.


Your Gift Helps Us Advocate for Honesty in Education

In our mission to eliminate racism, YWCA Columbus studies the root causes of inequity so that we can combat them. Just as racism underpins so many of our systems—financial, legal, criminal punishment system —it also influences our educational systems. Your gift supports YWCA Columbus in advocating for education that is inclusive and empowering for all children across the state. Learn more
