Institute For Democracy

Ensuring access to the voting booth is an important part of YWCA’s commitment to eliminating racism and empowering women and—now more than ever—it is critical to ensuring a healthy, safe, empowered future for our communities. Higher voter participation has been associated with higher employment rates, lower recidivism rates, and more positive health outcomes in communities, as well as increased attention from our elected officials and candidates for office. New challenges to the voting process posed by the COVID-19 global pandemic, along with pre-existing systemic and historical barriers to the voting booth for communities of color, have made our collective commitment to a civic engagement even more critical this election year.
