A Message From Our President

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 Suffolk County 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.  We are very proud of where we are today, and we are excited about the future.  

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 black women and girls.  

Over the past thirteen 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 Advocacy. Our “Sister-Nomic$” Economic Empowerment Events are a forum we use to support entrepreneurs and provide information on topics such as:  business planning, estate planning, budgeting, debt and credit management, insurance, investment and retirement planning. Our Annual Health Fairs, “ Spring forward to Health” have provided information on Diabetes, HIV/ Aids awareness and testing, biometric screening, mental health issues, nutrition, breast and cervical cancer awareness and other health topics.  We also hold employment workshops for unemployed and formerly incarcerated residents to help support economic prosperity in Suffolk County.  Each year in October we coordinate a “Meet the Candidates Forum” for community members to meet the candidates running for public office and ask questions on where they stand on issues relevant to our community.  In July 2019 we held our inaugural annual Panel Discussion, “Narrowing the Equity Gap in Suffolk County”.   Many distinguished community leaders participated in the discussion to help raise awareness and provide input on how we can forge ahead united in that mission.

Our signature scholarship fundraising event, “The Biennial Masquerade Ball” will take place on November 14, 2020.  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.

I am honored to serve as the Suffolk Chapter President.  Together with your support and the commitment of our dynamic chapter members we look forward to an exciting and productive program year.

Warm regards in committed advocacy,
Collette Morgan
