Week Without Violence

Together, We Can End Gender-Based Violence

YWCA is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities. For more than 20 years, we have set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence – a week to raise awareness and engage action to end the broad spectrum of violence – as part of a global movement with World YWCA to end violence against women and girls.  YWCA of Palm Beach County's 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. Join us from October 18 to 24 as we hold events, share information and stories, advocate, and more...all with a common goal in mind: together, we can end gender-based violence.

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 the last five years, we have focused on ending gender-based violence, including domestic violence, intimate partner violence, sexual assault, trafficking, and harassment.

We invite you to join us from October 18 – 24 as we share information, elevate stories, talk with policymakers, and raise awareness Find out more information by viewing the 2020 Week Without Violence webinar.
