New York City is a land of opportunity, but not everyone has the same opportunity to succeed and to make change. From our organization’s earliest days, women sought to create change. That founding principle is what fuels Women Creating Change today, with a new 21st Century approach.

Core to WCC’s principles is empowering women to be changemakers in their communities and in their lives.

Women are uniquely positioned to be leaders in their homes, neighborhoods, and communities, but many, primarily low-income and immigrant women, face significant barriers to participation in civic life.

That is why WCC is focused on women’s civic engagement through programs, policy and advocacy work and other events.
