Week Without Violence

Each year, YWCA USA, YWCA local associations around the country, friends, partners, and supporters come together in the third week of October for a Week Without Violence, where we raise awareness about the devastating effects of domestic violence. As the largest network of domestic violence service providers, we support victims of domestic violence in communities around the country and work, year-round, on legislative actions and issue education that can bring an end to all forms of violence against women. Take a moment to view highlights from the 2015 Week Without Violence, and learn more about the facts about domestic violence, and join us in our efforts to end domestic violence now.
