YWCA Greater Green Bay

Advocacy

The YWCA USA conducts a bi-annual survey with our local associations in the United States in order to establish our top legislative priorities for the 113th Congress. Local YWCA leaders are asked about their top legislative concerns regarding women’s health and safety, women’s economic empowerment and racial justice – the three broad issue areas in which the YWCA offers programs. Survey respondents include YWCA association Executive Directors, program directors, advocacy specialists and staff. Our associations will be surveyed in the Fall of 2014 to assess our priorities for the 114th Congress (spanning 2015-2017).

Legislative Priorities for 113th Congress

 The YWCA USA will focus its national advocacy efforts on legislation to:

1. End Racial Profiling

2. Work and Family Agenda

3. Domestic Violence and Gun Violence Prevention

4. Affordable Care Act

5. The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW)
