N.E.W. Academy of Science and Arts (NASA) is a Transitional Kindergarten through Fifth grade elementary
school near downtown Los Angeles, in the Pico Union/Westlake neighborhood. The area was and is a high density area that is largely populated with Latino immigrant families and identified with poverty. New
Economics for Women, through its work to improve the lives of Latinas and their families, and as a community development organization in the early 2000s, saw the need for a school that would empower and help families in the Pico Union/Westlake.
