Women Creating Change, formerly known as Women’s City Club of New York and established in 1915, is an inclusive community that partners with underserved women to develop and strengthen the skills and resources needed to effectively advocate for New York’s diverse communities.

Committed to the vision that all women have the power to be changemakers to create a more equitable New York City, WCC is developing programs, in partnership with community-based organizations, that offer women the resources, tools, and educational support to be more actively engaged in local civic life.

WCC’s Vision
Women Creating Change envisions a more just and equitable New York City where all women are civically engaged.

WCC’s Mission
Women Creating Change is an inclusive community that partners with organizations and with New York City women who have been systemically excluded from civic processes to develop programs and influence policies that result in more equitable civic engagement.

Issue Pillars
As WCC expands our programs and policy agenda, this work will be built around five pillars that are critical for New York City women:

  • Health and Reproductive Justice
  • Safety
  • Economic Justice
  • Environmental Justice
  • Education

Each of these priority areas has wide-reaching implications for women’s ability to engage in their communities and make their voices heard. WCC’s policy, advocacy, and programmatic work reinforces our mission as an inclusive community that partners with organizations as well as historically and currently disenfranchised women. We support policies that directly connect to our mission to expand civic engagement and encourage the inclusion of more voices in our political and civic processes.
