Elevating the voices of women and families

Welcome to the fifth and final issue of YGive, our bi-monthly update on YWCA Columbus’ progress, impact, and initiatives as we serve our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women.

This month’s issue focuses on our recent efforts, along with Groundwork Ohio, to elevate the voices of Ohio parents and families through a statewide Family Action Network. YWCA Columbus is committed to youth development and education so that with each new generation we’re all braver, wiser, and kinder.

Thank you, as always, for your contributions, courage, and conviction as we work toward creating a more peaceful, just, and free Columbus.
