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 dedicated to empowering young women immigrants, particularly low-income women, living in New York City.

It is committed to providing programs and services catering to their needs, to helping them know and claim their rights, and to enabling them to pursue better opportunities.
