This button was created for the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) of New York City, specifically their International Committee. The YMCA of New York City was founded in 1852. With increasing issues related to a rapidly growing immigrant population, the YMCA founded the International Committee in 1907 to assist immigrants. They provided information and assistance such as employment advice, legal and medical aid, and citizenship procedures.
