NEW Impact Report 2020 - 2021

Most of us thought by now we'd be back to normal. But the grim reality that COVID brought to light is that "normal" has always meant economic inequity for women and BIPOC communities.

Over the course of this pandemic, however, a spark has been lit.

Because economic opportunity and upward mobility are the foundation of the American Dream, we believe women are at the core of making this dream happen. As we all seek economic justice, it is critical that we all make decisions and be informed in order to ensure a better world for the next generations.


Every day we work for our standards of equity and innovation. Will you join us?

It’s been more than 30 years, but sometimes it can seem like yesterday that Latina-led New Economics for Women (NEW) began creating opportunities and transforming lives in California communities to ensure that women and their families have all the tools they need to prosper in any community.
Over time and alongside our successful results, we have seen changes and constants that require our continued, diligent watch over socio-economic justice factors like the marketplace and civic engagement that affect the well-being of all people and communities. NEW knows the keys to sustainable economic success, and we are doing our part to make sure that everyone knows what we know because when women win, we all win.
Sustainable success is work that is passed down from generation to generation, creating spaces and solutions based on healthy mindsets around money and what it can do. Sustainable success is also passing good work across demographic lines of ethnicity and gender. Such a compelling, unlimited vitality of life like this cannot be contained to just one group of people. We share the work; we share the success. And that is why we are still here, like the rainbow of families we help – not just surviving, but thriving for many more decades to come.
