Our Statement Against Anti-Asian Racism

The New York Women’s Foundation denounces all forms of racism, bias, and acts of violence.
We are deeply disturbed that Asian-American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities in the U.S. continue to be singled out and scapegoated for the COVID-19 pandemic. Racist words and actions are harmful and undermine their right to live safe, secure, and prosperous lives.
The Foundation rejects xenophobia and nativism and is in solidarity with the communities that these incidents have harmed.
We join with our grantee partners and community activists to take action by investing in solutions that advance justice.

Our latest grantmaking invests over $1M in coalition building, civic engagement, and more.
