Advocacy Day in Albany


Nonprofit Westchester is a proud member of the Human Services Council, a coalition of nonprofits that advocates for New York’s human services sector. On March 8 (all day), HSC will hold an Advocacy Day in Albany to advocate for policies that impact the wages of human services workers - and we invite you to attend!

On Advocacy Day, you will join human services workers across New York for a day of speaking with lawmakers about a specific set of policies that impact the wages of the nonprofit workforce. The day will also include a press conference, lunch and tour of the Capitol. Advocacy Day is FREE to attend - HSC will provide lunch and bus transportation.


Join an NPW Committee!


NPW Committees are a great way to advance work that benefits the entire nonprofit sector in Westchester, and meet, connect and network with other NPW Nonprofit and Business Members.


Help us collaborate together to address issues that impact the nonprofit sector, the people we serve and the nonprofit workforce, and develop and educate the community, government and elected officials about NPW’s policy and advocacy agenda. 2023 will be a critical opportunity to advance issues related to equitable contracting for the nonprofit sector.
