The Women’s City Club of New York, a nonprofit activist organization of 600 volunteer members, recently completed its 95th year of advocating for the vital causes that matter most to New Yorkers. WCC recommends changes in legislation, regulations and practices to create a better City, and educates New Yorkers to become changemakers, provides a forum for connecting with like-minded advocates, and makes available the resources (contacts, logistical support and training) for members to bring about needed policy improvements.
