Young Women United (YWU) leads policy change, research, place-based community organizing, and culture shift by and for women and people of color in New Mexico. We work to build communities where all people have access to the information, education, and resources needed to make real decisions about our own bodies and lives.
Our change making strategies come from deeply rooted reproductive justice values that recognize the intersections of people’s lives. We build our work at the intersection of those identities while centering the expertise of those most impacted by an issue.
Our core belief is that young women of color and their families have the experiences, analysis, and strength to make change by and for their communities. Our leadership development is centered around building young women who can represent their issues most effectively. We strive to build community among women of color in Albuquerque and beyond to identify issues and create positive change.
