We Believe Yard Signs

Yard signs for justice have been designed by the YWCA Great Lakes Bay Region in solidarity with the nationwide conversation and protests for racial justice. Signs are $10 each and all profits fund our racial justice work. Click here to purchase.

Women of Achievement Awards

The YWCA Great Lakes Bay Region's annual Women of Achievement event will not take place in person this year. Instead we will be honoring each recipient with a short video to recognize their achievements and where they will accept their award!

This series will be shared on our Facebook page beginning November 9. Please follow our Facebook Page to participate in the celebration.



We are dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
