2017 Women of Achievement

What an astounding evening of celebrating Women of Achievement, being inspired by Nikkita Oliver, and bearing witness to the powerful stories of YWCA’s Girls Without Limits! and Economic Empowerment Program participants.
Thank you.  Thank you for standing alongside the incredible leaders in our community who are working hard every day to bring about real education, improved health outcomes, and public policies that can and will save lives.  And, thank you for standing alongside the YWCA to eliminate racism and sexism to advance the social, political, and economic status of all women and girls.  
We heard resoundingly from the Honorees and Nikkita that it is our deep love for each other that will bring about justice. 
There is no gender justice without racial justice. 
Standing alongside one another, and making a commitment to use the power we have, we can bring about greater equity for women and communities of color, and we can create a community where all people feel welcome and are free from oppression.
YWCA Olympia is dedicated to realizing this vision, within our programs and the larger community.  Thank you for the love you showed Friday night.
