The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc., Manhattan Chapter is a non-profit organization that advocates on behalf of women of color. We focus on empowering women to be leaders in their community and their career. And, through advocacy we work as change agents to influence public policy that promotes gender equity in health, education adn economic empowerment.
While it is our mission to advocate on behalf of all black women, the Manhattan Chapter's operational reach covers the five boroughs of New York City and the extended New York Metro area.
Our member based organization consists of a diverse group of very talented, dedicated and career oriented women. The underlying commonality that ties us together is the desire to effect positive change for black women. A member of the Manhattan Chapter is surrounded by a group of other strong, progressive women, promoting a sisterly bond that provides support and guidance, both professionally and personally.
We operate through a committee structure to address issues in the various areas of our agenda. Our standing committees are: Budget & Finance; Fundraising and Public Relations; Health; Membership and Professional Development; Political/Legislative; and Programs. The Manhattan Chapter meets monthly on the third Tuesday at 281 Park Avenue South from 6:00 pm to 8:00pm.
