Y-Dub Discussions: Voting On a Mission
Jul 3 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Populations that experience barriers to voting – domestic violence survivors, previously incarcerated individuals, or new U.S. citizens – need civic engagement tools that respect and acknowledge their unique challenges. Inspired by the Ready to Run Conference, join us for a panel discussion on trauma-informed voter engagement. Whether you’re an individual who wants to encourage neighborhood voter registration or you’re an organization trying to implement flexible policies that promote employee civic engagement, this Y-Dub Discussions will give you actionable ways to make a difference in the Miami Valley. Human resources professionals, managers, and community activists are especially encouraged to attend.

YWCA Dayton is on a mission to eliminate racism and empower women. Previous Y-Dub Discussion topics have included School Board 101, which raised awareness for issues facing local schools, including the effects of trauma within the classroom; Recognizing Childhood Trauma, which explored toxic stress and the effects of lived trauma on our community systems; and YWomen Vote, which unpacked results of YWCA USA’s “What Women Want” report and looked at the political marginalization of women of color. Follow the conversation on social using #YDubDiscussions. Questions? Contact advocacy@ywcadayton.org.
