NAPAWF New York City (NAPAWF*NYC) builds power with members to advance social justice and human rights for Asian, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander self-identified women living in New York.

We are a community of AANHPI feminist visionaries and doers, dedicated to using our respective skills and expertise to raise our voices, take bold, meaningful action, and lift up our community. 


We believe in a world where AANHPI women, girls, and people have the political, economic, and social power and resources to live and thrive with dignity and respect.
