NFBPWC-NYC members participate in various topical campaigns. We believe that is important to be heard.
If there is a particular campaign you would like us to spotlight, please contact us and we will be happy to spotlight it and help spread the word.

As a diverse Club and a United Nations NGO, NFBPWC-NYC condemns racism, misogyny and xenophobia. We strive to not just be an inclusive organization but rather one in which members are empathetic in their interactions with one another. We strive to build our member’s base of business knowledge that includes intercultural understanding. As such, NFBPWC-NYC is disheartened by the rising trend in hate crimes and attacks in our country and particularly in New York.
All around us, in schools, workplaces, daily lives, in the media and on social media platforms, we are witnessing increasing hate crimes. The Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) community have been the target of increasing violence including verbal attacks, physical harassment, shunning, slurs, bullying, discrimination, and horrific deadly attacks.
Continuing attacks are fed by a systemic societal culture of hate that is keeping alive and further feeding centuries-long history of stereotyping, scapegoating, exploitation and abuse. During the pandemic, from March 19, 2020 to February 28, 2021, over 3,800 incidents were reported across the country including New York, one of the most diverse states in America.
New York City, a cosmopolitan city unlike any other, where almost 200 languages are spoken and where we host hundreds of consulates, embassies and permanent U.N. missions, we see these attacks. Our melting pot where 40 percent of the population was born outside of the United States has experienced increasing attacks.
Asian women have been specifically targeted, reporting twice as many anti-Asian hate incidences as men. Everyone should be clear that hate crimes are human rights violations. We stand by our sisters against injustice.
NFBPWC respects the human rights of all people, regardless of race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, age, class, or ability.
Repeating our commitment to fighting for an anti-racist policy agenda, we stand in solidarity with AAPI, Black, Brown, and Indigenous peoples and all those who stand in solidarity.
We are inviting you to speak out to condemn racism, sexism, hate, xenophobia and violence for all peoples. Commit yourself to working against hate in your business and workplace. Together we can make change happen.
