National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. Northern Virginia Chapter

 

 

About the National Coalition of 100 Black Women - The mission of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Incorporated (NCBW), is to advocate on behalf of black women and girls to promote leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education, and economic empowerment.

 

The NCBW was launched on October 24, 1981, with representatives from 14 states and the District of Columbia, and selected Jewell Jackson McCabe as its first National President.  Its mission is to advocate on behalf of women of color through national and local actions and strategic alliances that promote the NCBW agenda on leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education and economic empowerment.  The rapidity by which the organization has grown is attested to by its membership of over 2,500 members and 61 chapters in 25 states.

 

The Northern Virginia Chapter, charted with 35 members on January 22, 1984, under the leadership of Dr. Evelyn Reid Syphax, is committed to improving the quality of life of Black women, their families, and their communities. The Chapter is currently involved in several other projects, all of which address the critical concerns of the founding organization to significantly impact the education, economic, political and health awareness of the lives of Black Women and their families.
