YW Allies

Join us for our new inaugural event, YW Allies! This event honoring men in Central Alabama who have advocated for gender and/or racial equality in their company, community or with YWCA Central Alabama takes place on Wednesday, May 12 from 6-8 p.m. at Avondale Brewing Company.

The inaugural 10 YW Allies are:

While we have seen an immense amount of progress around women's issues throughout the past decade, we know there is still work to be done - and when men are willing to stand up and be ALLIES, our race to gender and racial equality is sure to be won. “We have long known that in order for real change to happen, everyone must be at the table,” said YWCA Central Alabama CEO Dr. LaRhonda Magras. “We are excited to be able to honor these ten incredible men who have stepped up to use their influence in order to ensure that we are moving towards a more equitable world. We hope you’ll join us in recognizing their work.”

In order for YWCA Central Alabama's vision of a community in which racism is eliminated and women are empowered to truly come to life, we need partners like our YW Allies to join us in this fight. To learn more about the Allies and to attend the event, please visit allies.swell.gives. Saw's BBQ will be catering and a cash bar will be available. A $10 minimum donation to a YW Ally’s campaign is requested.
