Key Issues and Insights to Consider in the 2022 Election

Categories: Policy & Advocacy

Election Day (November 8, 2022) is fast-approaching. As you prepare to head to the polls, you may be wondering: What are the key issues I need to think about? What are some of the main things to consider with special attention to racial and gender equity? YWCA USA recently created two important resources to help you think through just that. These fact sheets—one on child care and women’s economic security, and the other on gender based violence and preventing gun violence—give critical insights into the lived experiences and needs of people YWCAs serve across the country, including in Metropolitan Chicago and Illinois more broadly. You can access these fact sheets below to learn more about women’s experiences and needs, as well as legislative priorities, to consider as you vote.
