Week Without Violence

Week Without Violence is part of a global movement with YWCAs across the country and around the world to end violence against women and girls. At YWCA, they know that not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally and that some victims go unrecognized altogether. That’s why, for more than 20 years, the YWCA has set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence. Join us from October 16–21 as we raise awareness, elevate survivor voices, talk with policymakers, and more with a common goal: centering survivors together to end gender-based violence.

This year, their #WeekWithoutViolence will be observed from October 16 – October 21. YWCA Greater Pittsburgh will host community events throughout this #WWV23 to empower our neighbors to work towards a city of peace and safety for all. We invite you to join us in the fight against gender-based violence on our screens and in our streets. Learn more by clicking here
