YWCA USA Mourns the Death of Senator Kennedy
Date:8/27/2009

WASHINGTON, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The YWCA USA joins the nation in mourning the death of Senator Edward Kennedy, a progressive political force who worked tirelessly for nearly five decades to advance civil rights, education, social welfare, and health care. He authored 2,500 pieces of legislation that helped to improve the lives of all Americans.

"Senator Kennedy was a champion of issues of critical importance to the YWCA," said Lorraine Cole, PhD, YWCA USA CEO. "His dream lives on in his remarkable legacy of legislative accomplishments."

Kennedy was a steadfast proponent of raising the minimum wage, increased funding for Head Start, and the expansion of the Women, Infants and Children Program that provides nutritional assistance to pregnant women and mothers in need. He also championed critical women's and civil rights issues, including the Equal Rights Amendment, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family Medical Leave Act, the Mental Health Parity Act, the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and hate crimes legislation.

His greatest legacy, said Cole, was his three-decade commitment to ending health care disparities and promoting universal health care for all Americans. He sponsored the Ryan White CARE Act that provides funding for AIDS services and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) that provides health care to children of parents with low-incomes.
