Welcome to YWCA Lincoln!

A FORCE FOR CHANGE
• The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
• The YWCA is where women turn to join a dynamic community united by a passion for positive social change, racial justice and economic empowerment.
• We work to influence public policies on behalf of women and people of color.
• We speak out on behalf of women and girls and what they face today: racial, ethnic and gender disparities; domestic violence and sexual assault; a lack of affordable childcare and after-school programs; the urgency for job training in a struggling economy; the shortage of transitional and low-cost housing; and the high cost of health care.

What's new

  • UNL Celebrate's Womens History Month

    Wikipedia is the most used reference site in the world but only roughly 12% of its editors are female. Coverage of female scientists, poets, engineers, and other careers is seriously lacking.

    On March 15th, 2016 as a part of Women's Week, a diverse group of individuals came together to help close the gender gap on Wikipedia and became Wiki editors! We had four stations at the event to cover the entire writing process: Choosing a topic, researching, writing and editing, and (of course) celebrating! For each article that was created or substantially added to, Aspen Lincoln donated $5 to a YWCA SMART Girls. We raised $255 for YWCA SMART Girls with the help of of Aspen, our sponsors, and participants!
