The NoVo Foundation is holding its annual Women’s Building Block Party this September!
Join us in celebrating girls and women everywhere, and help us imagine the future of The Women’s Building! Featuring live performances, community art projects, kids’ activities, food and drink for purchase, and more, this family-friendly event is a chance to learn more about The Women’s Building, meet other members of our community, and imagine our future together.

The Women’s Building will rise from the walls of NYC’s former Bayview Correctional facility, and it will be a hub for the global girls’ and women’s rights movement. The space will help organizations, activists, and the public to connect and ensure that all girls and women can live free from violence and discrimination.
Last year, The Women’s Building’s community block party offered local residents, activists, business leaders, and community members a chance to learn more about the effort to transform the former Bayview Correctional Facility into The Women’s Building and meet organizations working to advance the rights of girls and women. The event had an incredible turnout with hundreds of attendees, many who shared in our vision for the future of the girls and women’s rights movement in NYC and beyond.
