Welcome to the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. - Delaware Chapter's website. The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. is a nationally recognized non-profit with more than 14 million members in 62 affiliate chapters across the United States.
Structural inequalities predicated on race, zip code, gender, social economic class, and lifestyle are persistently widespread. That’s why 22 years ago, a small group of Black women began meeting to organize a collective voice to drive impactful, positive change in the first state. Chartered in 1995, National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. - Delaware Chapter (NC100BW-DE) emerged from those conversations.
Today, NC100BW-DE represents a bold movement of progressive women demanding parity, equity, and social justice for African American women and girls.
Our membership includes a phenomenal group of women ages 20 through 85 residing in New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties who are intentional about bettering lives. We are daughters, siblings, aunts, mothers, mentors, wives, entrepreneurs, educators, attorneys, artists, accountants, counselors, legislative aides, pastors, physicians, social workers, scholars, scientists, elected officials, and much more. Most of all, we are our Sister’s Keepers.
By raising our collective voices on behalf of Black women, the bedrock of civilization, we benefit ourselves, our families and by extension our communities. Black women vote at comparatively high rates and had a higher voting rate than all other groups of men and women during the last two presidential elections.
NC100BW-DE priorities center around self-care, empowerment, and advocacy related to gender equity, economic empowerment, health, education, mentoring, and community organizing. Fostering a new pipeline of effective leaders is core to advancing our mission.
Mounting challenges and inequities affecting Black females of all ages are to be faced with courage if we are to reach a state of parity. We seek to educate ourselves concerning the disparities affecting Black women and our families. We endeavor to collaborate with others to tear down fences that limit Black women’s access to political, economic, and social power.
Our groundbreaking “My Sister’s Keeper” Leadership Summit is one way our members and the public gain valuable information to guide our advocacy. Whether it’s through our Public Policy Legislative Action Agenda, the 100 Bridges Mentoring Program connecting girls with mentoring & STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) opportunities, the Dr. Theresa D. Drummond Scholarship Program for traditional and non-traditional students, Gentleman’s Cook-Off Cooking for A Cause and more, we are not just a coalition but also a movement. Neither voiceless nor invisible.
