Ame Bora Selected as 2017 Advocate of NYC

Congratulations to Ame Bora on being chosen as a 2017 Advocate of NYC by the Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence. Ame is the Economic Empowerment Coordinator at Womankind, where she develops workshops and trainings on financial literacy and workforce development to help survivors of gender-based violence become financially self-sufficient.

"I am passionate about empowering women of color, Asian communities, and marginalized individuals from varying backgrounds to be able to find hope, healing and belonging, and ultimately lead the life they desire. The most rewarding piece of my work is seeing women and survivors from different communities feel empowered that they can start making even small changes in their life once they are informed on financial and career topics."
