Week Without Violence

Week Without Violence Campaign

Monday, Oct. 19th – Thursday, Oct. 22nd, 2020!

Week Without Violence is a global movement with YWCAs across the country and the world to end violence against Black, Indigenous, girls, women and TGNC people of color. We know that not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally, and that some survivors and communities go unrecognized altogether.

The YWCA Berkeley/Oakland will be uplifting the work of local organizations working on the frontlines for housing, immigrant and transformative justice & collective liberation. Together, we are committed to building a world without violence where our communities are healthy, safe and free.
