YWCA La Crosse 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.
