Welcome to the website of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Suffolk County Chapter, Inc. (NC100BW – Suffolk). As you move through our site, you will learn much about our organization that is committed to the empowerment of women and girls of African descent.
NC100BW – Suffolk is a non-profit organization whose membership consists of professional women from both the public and private sectors. We are a part of a National network of more than 60 Chapters, representing 25 states and the District of Columbia. We draw on the strength of our membership to work toward solutions on issues that are of concern to contemporary Black women – the eradication of gender-based inequities in education, healthcare, economic development and employment. We encourage engagement in advocacy activities that will help to move forward a legislative agenda in support of our goals and purposes.
We believe that our organization provides an opportunity for valuable communication among our members that serves to increase their own personal and professional development. As a progressive leadership group, our NC100BW – Suffolk members serve as role models perfectly able to help to elevate the quality of life for young Black women and those seeking empowerment, as well.
Throughout the year, we offer programs and events that are open to the public. Our signature health program focuses on the terrible impact that HIV/AIDS continues to have on the African American population, with special emphasis on prevention and screening among women. Our signature fundraiser – the Biennial Masquerade Ball – provides financial support of our scholarship fund for young women continuing their education beyond their High School years. We invite you to join us as we actively move toward the achievement of our goals.
