National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Suffolk County Chapter, Inc.

A Message From Our President

Greetings and thank you for visiting the website of the Suffolk County Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women. The (NC100BW) Suffolk Chapter was chartered in 2006 as an affiliate chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. We are one of 62 chapters in 27 states and the District of Columbia. The Suffolk Chapter stands strongly in support of the mission “to advocate on behalf of black women and girls through national and local actions and strategic alliances that promote leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education and economic empowerment. “
Our chapter is comprised of a diverse group of socially conscious, progressive women of African-descent who want to use their resources and talents to drive meaningful change to members of our community, especially women and girls.

Over the past eleven years we have honored our commitments to the mission with our involvement in Local and National programming in Health, Education, Economic Empowerment, and Public Policy. Our “My Sister’s Keeper” Economic Empowerment Event is a forum we use to provide information on topics such as: entrepreneurship, estate planning, budgeting, debt and credit management, insurance, investment and retirement planning. Our health forums have provided information on HIV/ Aids awareness and testing, biometric screening, diabetes, depression, nutrition, breast and cervical cancer awareness and other health topics. We coordinate an annual Legislative Day providing an opportunity for our communities to meet the candidates running for public office and be part of the political process. In 2017 our Education Committee launched our mentoring program for our scholarship recipients.

Our signature scholarship fundraising event, “The Biennial Masquerade Ball” will take place in November 2018. At this event we take the time to honor outstanding women who are leaders and trailblazers for our community both locally and nationally. Annually scholarships are awarded to deserving high school graduates to assist them in their educational paths

If you are interested in membership, please review our members tab for information on how to join our chapter.
