Social and Racial Justice

The YWCA’s commitment to racial and social justice is one of the common threads that unites YWCAs across the country. 

The YWCA Racial Justice Challenge is Now Live 

The Racial Justice Challenge is your chance to address systemic racism head on. Build your own tools for dealing with issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership.

YWCA Helena stands

with Transgender Montanans

Our voice is a crucial part of this work.

Your voice is a crucial part of this work.

With our mission and community in mind, we stand in support of Montana State Representative Zephyr in her efforts to highlight the realities for non-binary and transgender individuals and communities.


YWCA Helena stands strong in its mission to bringing us closer in ensuring peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. As we endeavor with you to raise the voice of those who are silenced, we wholeheartedly encourage you to engage in the below actions. We've attached a resource at the bottom of this email to help you  interrupt  language and behaviors that exclude transgender and queer individuals.

Here are a few ways you can act:

  • Continue to learn more and speak out for those whose voices are silenced.

  • Join in Montana Pride events.  All are welcome to join YWCA Helena as we walk in the Montana Pride Parade on Aug. 5

  • Sign this petition that a number of LGBTQIA+ and ally organizations are promoting to show Montanans want all of our voices to be heard.

  • Donate Now. You can either donate directly to the organizations below, or donate to YWCA Helena

TransVisible Montana, The Western Montana LGBTQ+ Community Center


YWCA Helena stands with you as we actively interrupt hate and ideas that don’t include us all.
