About a Week WIthout Violence

At YWCA, we know that not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally and that some victims go unrecognized altogether. That’s why we focus on ending gender-based violence, including domestic violence, intimate partner violence, sexual assault, trafficking, and harassment.

This year, we invite you to join us from October 18 – 23, as we move beyond resilience, helping lead women and girls from just surviving to thriving. During this year’s campaign, we recognize the limits and honor the significance of resilience in surviving violence but aim to collectively work towards healing and building thriving futures for survivors which also includes replenishment, rest, and recovery.
