YWCA of Palestine Newsletter: Advocating for Justice
“The YWCA has a very long history in Palestine; it started in 1893 when groups of women gathered around bible studies. Eventually, women groups started establishing local YWCA’s and since then the organization has played different roles supporting women to survive, to get access to resources and to understand and defend their rights.”
This quote is excerpted from Dr. Mira Rizeq’s article in the YWCA’s Fall 2016 newsletter. Dr. Rizeq writes on the history of the YWCA’s advocacy efforts. Also featured is Rev. Loren McGrail, writing on advocating for justice and peace in Palestine.
