A CALL
TO WOMEN
WHO CARE . . .

. . . about their own children

. . . about their own homes and
       Every home

. . . about their own families
       and Every family

. . . about their future, and
       the Future of our nation

A CALL FOR AFFIRMATIVE ACTION

This CALL is to all Women of Community

       To establish a climate of acceptance for open housing in an open housing market.

       To face some of the concrete and basic issues involved in open housing.

       To stand up for our convictions as women with Christian ethics.

       To help people in our community communicate and make decisions of trust and mutual criticism.

Why is open housing the YWCA's business?

       As women we recognize that if we are to live as good neighbors and to rear children of good will we must have the freedom to live freely in a multi-racial society.

       Open housing has an integral part in ending discrimination and implements the rights guaranteed to all citizens.
