New Women New Yorkers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization empowering young women immigrants in New York City.

Creating a safe space and support network for young women immigrants is an additional objective. With our blog we offer them with a platform to tell their stories and express their voice – an empowering experience for many, who remain silenced in their communities.

We follow a very collaborative approach, engaging and forging partnerships with existing organizations and key stakeholders in the community to run our programs and fill in the gaps.
