Below are the slides from our October 18 webinar #BuildingPower.

Integral to the success of YWI is the Young Women’s Advisory Council.  Cis and trans women and girls of color and gender non-conforming young people, ages 12-24 participated in 5 issue-based working groups to inform policy, program, data, and funding recommendation for New York City.

Building Power NYC Map is a pilot tool used to map the services available to cis, trans and gender-nonconforming young women and girls of color in New York City. All information shared was self-reported by agencies. These findings only reflect the 80 organizations that completed the mapping survey and the 197 locations that participated in YWI.

    Please do share my email if possible with others in the webinar – I don’t have access to the chatbox since I couldn’t get on zoom and I am headed out to another meeting now, will miss the very end. But it has been inspiring to hear about all the other work happening nearby and nationally!
