NEWS & EVENTS
I am deeply honored to serve as the new President of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. Bergen/Passaic chapter. I pay homage to all of the past presidents and others who have gone before me on whose shoulders I stand, “Women who have made a difference!”
36 years ago the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. was formed as a national organization, and 31 years ago in Bergen County, in response to the Civil rights era to fight against social injustices. Today, the fight for social equality is even more necessary than ever before. Over the past several years we have witnessed social and racial disparities on many levels, against all people of color with the resurgence of hate groups, hate crimes, police brutality and other acts that have questioned our freedom and progress as a nation. Yet, as an organization, NCBW has remained vigilant as a voice against these acts of social inequities, and we will continue to be a voice to educate and empower those we serve in the Bergen and Passaic communities.
