ACTIVE CITIZENRY BAHAMAS

Stand Up, Speak Up  -  Be a Voice for the Voiceless

On Tuesday June 5th at 6:00p.m. a new YWCA program, Active Citizenry Bahamas (ACB),  will be launched at the YWCA's Headquarters on Dolphin Drive. 


Advancing the theme that we explored in last year's World YWCA/YMCA Week of Prayer, "Stand Up, Speak Up - Be a Voice for the Voiceless" ,  ACB aims to encourage citizens and residents to move from being passive spectators in our democracy to being active participants engaged in pooling our strengths and talents to make a difference in the country.


ACB is in the embryonic phase of formation and the upcoming meeting in June will provide you with an opportunity to be introduced to the philosophy and planned activities of the new association.


Additionally, more about the ACB Association will be provided in each weekly YWCA News Update.  Our thanks to the founding members for the extensive work that has been done to date:


  • Faye Bascom  -  Educator;  Information,  Communication and Technology Specialist

  • Rosalie Fawkes  -  Educator, Curator and General Secretary of The YWCA of The Bahamas

  • Kim Minors  -  Educator, Entrepreneur

  • Dr. Karen St. Cyr  -  Educator, Policy Advisor for Science, Technology and Innovation


As advocacy is one of the priorities of the World YWCA Movement, we look forward to aligning our mission and purpose with  this new program coming on stream.
