Public policy and advocacy at the YWCA

Public policy impacts everyone.  Local, state, and federal policy decisions can uphold, maintain, and shape inequities and disparities in health, education, civil rights, and economic stability.  To make lasting change, we must be active in transforming those policies.  Coupled with the YWCA West Central Michigan mission – eliminating racism; empowering women and girls; promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all – public policy and advocacy address the underlying issues affecting members of our community and those we serve and move into action.  

Want to know what we are watching at the state level?  You can find out what we have been monitoring on our LegiScan page!
