ASTORIA, QUEENS, NY, 6/10/19 – 816 New York, a full-service brand strategy and communications agency, announced today that its founder and director has joined Women Creating Change, an accredited women-focused civic charity in New York City.  

Women Creating Change, established as Women’s City Club of New York in 1915, partners with underserved women to develop and strengthen skills and resources to effectively advocate for New York’s communities and be more actively engaged in local civic life.

Sarah Williams, founder and director of 816 New York, is looking forward to becoming involved in causes, by way of WCC, with a focus on housing and homelessness, health, and good government.

“When I learned of Women Creating Change and their recently rebranded vision and mission, I didn’t hesitate to join,” Williams says. “I look forward to becoming actively involved in events and programs, as well as building relationships with members and staff, to effect real civic change in this city.”

The WCC website offers citywide guides to services and resources, such as low- to no-cost social services, programs, and resources, as well as information on NYC public housing. Their case studies showcase some of the policy and advocacy work they’ve done on behalf of underserved communities.
