NWS is a vibrant and affirming community organizing space centered on gender equity, creative expression and celebration of identity.

Our mission is to build strong relationships, create economic opportunity and inspire possibility for women, femme, queer, transgender and gender nonconforming individuals in an accessible, supportive, safer space.


New Women Space was founded in 2016 as a 30 day pop-up space by founding members, Sandy Hong and Melissa Wong. Kickstarted by a successful crowdfunding campaign that raised over $17K, NWS has continued to evolve and maintain its operations over the last two years through grassroots volunteering, organizing and fundraising with a strong focus on relational community building and principles of emergent strategy. To learn more about NWS' beginnings, whereabouts and goings, please reach out at newwomenspace@gmail.com. 

NWS currently offers a paid stipend to a core staff of 10 community members for various responsibilities across volunteer management, program management, operations and space maintenance. The remainder of our operations is sustained through a growing network of over 250+ volunteers where we focus our time, energy and resources on weaving relationships across skills, interests, identity specific experiences and shared values. 

NWS generates revenue and maintains its operations through the following activities:
Grant Funding
Space Rental
Retail Merchandise Sales
