United we stand. Together we act. Until Justice Just Is.

Eliminating racism. Empowering women. Our mission lives in the soul of everyone at YWCA St. Paul.  Combating injustice and fighting for equality is in not only in our mission statement, it is in our DNA and our legacy. That is why we are proud to roll out Until Justice Just Is, an initiative designed to bring national attention and awareness to the systemic and institutional racism that plagues our nation, and to center the justice-oriented work that YWCA does every day.

For more than 100 years, YWCA St. Paul has been in the community working to eliminate racism and empower women through education and advocacy on issues of racial justice and gender equity, and through programs focused on areas of significant racial and gender disparity – housing & supportive services, youth development, employment & economic development and health & wellness.

Our communities demand justice in a thousand different ways. This moment in the movement for racial justice can’t instantly address systemic inequities, but it can galvanize others to join our efforts to meet those demands and to elevate and bring about change for women and people of color.

At YWCA, we lead and engage in conversations about racism, racial justice, and how we can work for change.  Will you join us? Learn more at: https://www.ywcastpaul.org/untiljustice/
