YWCA Madison is committed to eliminating racism and empowering women. The way we pursue this commitment is by seeking justice over charity, empowerment over enabling. It is instilled in everything that we do and the propels how we do our work.
Our goal is to eliminate barriers that exist for individuals looking to become self-sufficient, expand the thinking of individuals looking to explore privilege and advocate around issues that most affect marginalized communities.

Employment & Transit
Economic empowerment is more than simply having a job. Our goal is to create economic justice that equals equity and fairness.
Race & Gender Equity
To achieve our goals of a more equitable society, YWCA Madison provides a spectrum of programming aimed at creating a more just and inclusive society.
We use restorative justice to provide alternative discipline models in schools to keep students in school and out of the justice system.
