Please Join us for our 2019 Annual Luncheon on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 583 Park Avenue in New York City, from 12-2 pm.

For over 25 years, Women for Women International has been on the front lines, responding to women where they are, and providing them with resources and support needed to recover and rebuild their lives. This year’s Luncheon is an opportunity to join a critical discussion about the realities of women living in rapidly evolving conflicts and what resources are needed to allow us to move swiftly into unstable areas and reach the women who desperately need our support today.
