PRESIDENT WELCOME

Welcome!  Thank you for taking the time to find out about the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc.  San Francisco Chapter. There is a place for you here. President Emeritus, I. Lee Murphy Reed, Chartered the San Francisco Chapter in 2004 with a jurisdiction of San Francisco, Marin and San Mateo counties. There’s room to grow and expand your gifts and talents as we work to enhance the lives of women and girls of color.

Working in alignment with the vision of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. that is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, we desire “to see a world where socio-economic inequity does not exist.”

Equity in the areas of health, education and economic empowerment drives the national and local chapters to get involved with other nonprofits, companies, small businesses and individuals working toward equality that lifts the lives of Black women and girls.  Our strategic alliances are multicultural as we embrace everyone including men who want to improve the lives of the women in their lives.

Leadership within the local chapter and national headquarters is key to building a strong membership.  Our members lead by example taking the helm of various projects and they also follow the leader as needed.  We are versatile in our efforts to achieve goals.

Camaraderie of like-minded women ready to take on challenges and enjoy life is what you will find as you engage the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. San Francisco Chapter.  Beyond the annual Golden Girls “Bridging the Generations” Hats and Gloves Tea held at the historic Fairmont Hotel that provides funding for programs, there are trainings, advocacy and support for your endeavors within and outside of the organization.   

Opportunities provided by the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. include meeting with national and State political leaders.  We have an active voice that is heard in Washington, D.C. and Sacramento.

Multiple levels of experiences await you. Partnerships with Covered California,  Sutter Health, Stanford Cancer Institute, The San Francisco Black Film Festival,  and the chapter’s Doris Ward Workforce Employment and Training Program give a glimpse of the varied involvement you can expect.  

Excellence awaits you.  The San Francisco Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. is not perfect, but with your participation, we will be closer to perfection as you invest your time and treasure with women who strive to help each other become excellent in all they do.  There is a place for you here. Welcome!
