Women of Color Conversation Series
An ongoing collaboration between YWCA Utah, Racially Just Utah, Utah Pacific Islander Civic Engagement Coaliton (UPICEC), Planned Parenthood Association of Utah, Association for Women in Psychology, and Utah Coalition of La Raza (UCLR) of events featuring leaders in our community.
The next event in the Women of Color Conversation Series will be October 18 during Week Without Violence.
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.

The Salt Lake Area Family Justice Center is an innovative, collaborative model to help women and men in abusive relationships and those who have been sexually assaulted.
We offer comprehensive, caring services from fourteen partners in one accessible location. When people seek help at the Family Justice Center, they find trauma-informed, compassionate professionals who work with them to identify their needs, help them set personally meaningful goals for a path forward, and assist them in navigating criminal justice and other systems to obtain the resources they need to change their lives.
