YWCA Boulder County Advocacy

Get Involved and Advocate for Women, Girls and People of Color

At YWCA Boulder County, we advocate for women and girls by educating and developing relationships with policy makers, community leaders and community members. We work to create legislative, policy and systems change to break down barriers for the advancement and economic sustainability of self-identifying women, girls, and people of color.
