The New York Asian Women's Center has transformed.
In January 2017, we changed our name. And, we are strengthening our focus on advocacy and policy work, alongside our direct service provision.
Though our plans to expand our advocacy efforts were initiated before the presidential election, advocacy takes on greater urgency and carries more profound, life-changing implications. The survivors we serve, along with their communities, are frightened because of immigration concerns, hate crimes, the potential of widening gaps in the social welfare safety net, loss of health insurance, and the decline of affordable housing, among other concerns.
