The YWCA of Gettysburg and Adams County is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

With recent political and social events, our national conversation has centered on how the implicit and explicit role of racism has made our country a more difficult place to live for people of color. It has led to increased awareness and reflection of our own existences and experiences, has forced us to have difficult conversations, and has given us meaningful opportunity to gain an empathetic understanding of those around us.
