Eliminating racism. Empowering women. Here in Manchester, the power of YWCA comes from the women and girls we serve, and it comes from our bold, passionate partners who are equally committed to the work of justice. Partners like you help us serve more than our neighbors. Partners like you help us fulfill our mission to change the power structures that determine the future.
Every day at YWCA NH, we turn on the lights and open the doors to answer the cry for justice. We provide housing to families. We help ensure women and girls have safe and bright futures. We dismantle systemic racism. We know what justice looks like because every day, we get up and do the work. And we know you do, too.
Options from here for prospective/current partners:
So let’s join forces and keep our collective commitment to justice in our community strong. Let’s do the work until injustice is rooted out, until institutions are transformed, until the world sees women, girls, and people of color the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.
Thank you for keeping our collective commitment to justice in our community strong. Thank you for standing with us to do the work until injustice is rooted out, until institutions are transformed, until the world sees women, girls, and people of color the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.
