Show Notes

YWCA has been part of Tacoma since 1906. How it fulfills its mission over the years has changed (in 1910 they opened a swimming pool for women and children; in 1976 they opened the first domestic violence shelter in the state). Laine and Jessica talk about the YWCA, its mission, and its unique events (including a tampon drive at the Red Hot!) Check out this interesting episode with people doing great work in our community.
