Conventions, nineteenth, 1952

Scope and Contents

Addresses, worship services, and reports for the Nineteenth National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America. Addresses from YWCA delegates as well as special guests reflect an interest in international affairs, peace, and freedoms and include a presentation on the international implications of the "Interracial Charter" passed at a previous convention. In addition to addresses, the convention features small discussion groups of special interests as a chance to meet and talk in a smaller setting. Discussion groups include leaders of district YWCA's, Y-Teen leaders, and YW-Wives. They evaluate their progress in addition to discussing the relationship with the national YWCA movement and outside organizations. Following these materials is a report concerning YWCA work with the U.S.O. and United Community Defense Services.
