We are proud to share a recently released report on the first two years of the NYC Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color, a funders collaborative aimed at supporting young women of color and transgender and gender-nonconforming (TGNC) youth.

New York’s Lower East Side Chinatown is known for its concentration of Chinese eateries and shops, with bustling sidewalk markets and popular dim sum halls. Although Lower Manhattan is the most visible center of Chinese life in the city, longtime residents and new immigrants alike find themselves more and more far-flung, as high rises and art galleries compete with markets and community centers for space in the neighborhood. 

It’s almost Mother’s Day and to celebrate, we’re pledging a $5,000 match from our Community Fund to support VOCAL-NY's Mama's Bail Out NYC campaign!
