When I worked at Sarah Lawrence I would often refer patrons to the Barnard Center for Research on Women’s wonderful Guide to NYC Women’s and Social Justice Organizations.
The Guide is a directory of 500+ NYC-based organizations which all work for sexual, racial, economic and/or social justice. You can check out the organizations either alphabetically or categorically (e.g. Activism, Arts and Media, and Labor).
It’s a great place to explore if you’re looking for employment or volunteer opportunities, as well as building connections with people who are doing amazing things in our community on a daily basis.
