    Taking Action: Charting an Anti-Racist Path Forward 




    Thank you NPW board members Richard Nightingale, CEO of Westhab and Allison Lake, Executive Director of Westchester Children's Association for an outstanding presentation on the "10 Myths About Affordable Housing in Westchester" last week with over 100 attendees. 

    The fact is that 40% of our community is struggling to live in Westchester County and that percentage jumps to 60% for the nonprofit workforce. This community-wide issue needs a community-wide effort to advocate for solutions. If you missed the workshop or wish to learn more about affordable housing in Westchester, visit Affordable Housing Resources


    The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in paying tribute to the generations of African Americans who fought for social justice and racial equity. Go to their website for resources, information on exhibitions and collections

    Please email NPW Communications Manager Amy Rivera with any member events, articles or information you with to share in in honor of Black History Month. Go HERE to learn about members events commemorating Black History Month
