Leslie Paluch has joined YWCA Evanston/North Shore in the role of policy and advocacy manager. She will develop and oversee policy work that advances YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism and empower women.
Paluch, who previously served as a fellow focusing on justice reform at The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights in Washington, D.C., grew up in Evanston and is looking forward to bringing her policy focus to YWCA.
“I wake up every morning proud to be part of YWCA Evanston/North Shore and excited to build a policy and advocacy program that advances our mission, strengthens our community, and supports the people we serve,” she said. “Having grown up in Evanston, it’s a particular privilege to return home to work with such a great group of committed, brilliant, and inspiring individuals. I cannot wait to see everything we will accomplish together in the coming years.”
