The YWRC relies on individual donations from supporters like you. This year, you can DOUBLE your impact. Because of a generous matching gift, your donation of $100 or more before December 31st will be DOUBLED!
That means we will be able to offer therapy and a support network to girls who have experienced abuse or trauma. We will be able to help young moms facing homelessness find shelter. We will be able to reveal sources of inner strength and resiliency to girls who feel they just aren’t enough. We will be able to make sure every girl we work with pursues the respect, opportunity, and love she deserves.

In this blog post, Tara, Empowerment Program Coordinator, breaks down what 'rape culture' is, how it's cultivated and what we can do about it. 
"The first steps are to define it, recognize when we see rape culture occurring and understand the magnitude of the effect it has on people. If we can do that, then change can start to happen on an individual and societal level."
