YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism and empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. Social justice is embedded into the work we do internally as an organization and externally in the community with our clients and partner organizations. Our advocacy efforts are focused on:
- Health & Safety
- Empowerment & Economic Advancement
- Civil & Human Rights
YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee offers facilitated conversations on racial justice and equity for any organization or group that participates in the 21 Days of Anti-Racism Challenge. If you or your organization would like to have a facilitated conversation, please contact our Senior Manager of Social Justice & Advocacy at: Amber.Hale@ywcanashville.com
We’re proud to work with the Dan & Margaret Maddox Fund and admire its commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice. Click here to visit the Maddox Fund’s DEIJ resource page.
