YWCA Week Without Violence
October 18-23, 2021
Week Without Violence is part of a global movement with YWCAs across the country and around the world to end violence against women and girls. At YWCA, we know that not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally and that some victims go unrecognized altogether. That’s why, for more than 20 years, YWCA has set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence. Join us from October 18 – 23, as we hold events, share information and stories, advocate, and more with a common goal in mind: together, we can end gender-based violence.
We’re mobilizing and urging Congress to take action and support survivors of domestic violence by reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) (H.R. 1620), and the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) (H.R. 2119). These bills are instrumental in preventing gender-based violence and critical to strengthening resources for survivors of domestic violence. Join us by telling Congress to ACT NOW and pass H.R. 1620 and H.R. 2119!
