YWCA Alaska is dedicated to eliminating racism and empowering women while promoting dignity, peace, freedom and justice for all.
The mission of the YWCA, eliminating racism and empowering women, has been the guiding principle for creating programs in health, economic empowerment, youth development, social justice, and women’s leadership. With a community-based Board of Directors, the YWCA Alaska is an autonomous nonprofit organization dedicated to providing mission and participant-driven programming in Alaska.
YWCA Alaska condemns all forms of racism including xenophobia and anti-immigrant sentiment. We cannot allow our leaders to further institutionalize racism through public policy. An immigration ban, a constructed wall, or other limitations and policies based on an individuals’ nationality or religion, is bad policy and not a reflection of YWCA Alaska’s mission. YWCA Alaska will continue to speak out against inequity and work to foster peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
YWCA Alaska is a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity and Seal Holder.
We meet all 20 Standards for Charity Accountability.
