— As an anti-sexist, anti-racist social justice agency, YWCA Orange County stands ready to assist local community members experiencing any consequences from the recent travel ban.

YWCA has an extensive network of local, state and national resources to address a large range of human rights violations. The organization will provide support and assistance to colleagues, neighbors and community members experiencing any form of discrimination.

"As a nation founded through immigration, we must look critically at the racialization of our current policies," " said Christine Sadowski, executive director of YWCA Orange County. "In many countries around the world, few women, and certainly no children, are the decision-makers regarding emigration, yet will once again be adversely affected by the recent directives. There are plenty of strategies to keep our country safe that don't result in wholesale, prejudiced-based actions, targeting any one religion, nationality, or ethnicity. While YWCA will continue to advocate for racially-just policies, we are also equipped to address the results of those which are not."

For more information, contact YWCA Orange County at 845-561-8050 ext. 10 or stop by YWCA Orange County at 21 West Street, Newburgh.
