Week Without Violence is part of a global movement to end violence against women and girls with YWCAs across the country and around the world. At YWCA, we know that not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally. That’s why, for more than 20 years, YWCA has set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence. Join us from October 15 to 19 as we hold events, share information and stories, advocate, and more with a common goal in mind: together, we can end gender-based violence.
