Over 50 percent of New York City’s immigrants are women. Despite the vulnerabilities and barriers they face, young women immigrants are making important contributions to New York City’s society and economy every day.
New Women New Yorkers (NWNY) is a cross-community organization empowering young women immigrants from underserved communities in New York City.
Through our programs we provide these young women immigrants with the knowledge, skills, and support they need to pursue better educational and professional opportunities, and to become agents of change in and for their communities.
