NEWS & EVENTS
Dear Members and Friends,
I am deeply honored to serve as the 10th President of The National Coalition of 100 Black Women (NCBW), Inc. Bergen/Passaic Chapter. First, I want to acknowledge the leadership provided by President Ryner and last year’s board. This is an exciting time for the new class and me as we begin a new day after the aberrant challenges of the past two years.
The NCBW Bergen/Passaic Chapter was chartered on September 21, 1986, by our founding member Mary Ann Miller (affectionately known as M.A.M.), who passed on to Glory in 2021. However, we continue to celebrate her legacy, as well as those of our past presidents, of unwavering focus on the work that needed to be done. Today, we fight for social equality with unprecedented injustices surrounding our Black women and girls. The guiding principle for this Chapter remains to bring about change in the areas outlined in our mission— by advocating for Black Women and girls and promoting leadership development and gender equity in health, education, and economic empowerment.
Focusing on local, state and national political areas through voter education, registration and research.
The overall wellness of the African-American Woman and her family is our concern. Knowledge is the key.
Enhancing and encouraging leadership skills in young girls. Advocating in support of educational issues for black women of all ages.
Promoting the economic stability and advancement of African American women through symposiums, workshops and community forums.
