Week Without Violence - October 14 - 22, 2022

If you could do just #1Thing to end violence against women, what would it be? The YWCA is working to create a just community for all, transforming one life at a time. But to really make a difference, our individual efforts must come together to make a collective impact.

We’re mobilizing. This year’s 2022 Week Without Violence campaign, designed to confront violence against women and girls will focus on just #1Thing we can do to stop violence against women. We’ll be sharing stories from community members, our team and possibly, your team’s commitment to ending domestic violence.

Awareness + Action = Social Change. We continued our work in the spring with the 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge where we created dialogue about race, gender, and the intersection of inequality.

While we strive to transform lives, we know we can’t do it alone. All systems must work together to build bridges, amplify voices, and show up for equal access. Whether we are connecting with our clients in an emergency room, housing them and linking them with community resources, to working with them as they choose a financial institution or coaching them for an employment opportunity, we are counting on our relationships with our trusted and like-minded partners to bridge those gaps.

We’re taking the next step. The conversation must remain collaborative and the time to act is now. Our vision of a just community for all requires each of us to consciously effect change.

We will be holding a kick-off event during our First Responders’ Breakfast on Friday, October 14 at the Country Club of Harrisburg where we will celebrate our collective “One Things” toward healing and eradicating domestic violence. We will also be engaging in a social media campaign to highlight our collective voices as we enhance our systems advocacy. Key supporters will also be invited to an alumni Week Without Violence celebration as we gather to enact change.

Join us because the time is now. Our strength comes from our bold, passionate donors and sponsors who are equally committed to the work of justice and collaboration.

This is your opportunity to join us and make a statement that each of us can do “Just One Thing” to end violence against women. Show your constituents, customers, and shareholders that your values align with theirs on safety and equal access for all people, by supporting this important cause.
