President’s Message

Advocating on Behalf of Black Women & Girls, from Advocacy to Action

Thank you for taking your time to visit the webpage of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women Inc, Oakland Bay Area Chapter.  More than 36 years ago the National Coalition of 100 Black Women was formed in New York City. The Oakland Bay Area chapter was chartered 27 years ago.  I stand before you as the President for the Oakland Bay Area Chapter.  Over time, things have changed and the fight for equal rights has changed to now include social media. NCBW has continued its vigilant march voicing our opinions on acts of social injustice, education awareness, economic empowerment, wealth building and many more!

With the hard work of our members and volunteers, we will continue to move our agenda forward with the help of our dedicated community leaders, sponsors and partners.  Our focus is to:

  • Promote economic awareness, development and home ownership through financial literacy and wealth building
  • Get out in our community, expand our footprint in the communities we live and serve; Be involved in Public Policy at the local, state and national level
  • Educate our members and communities to advocate for public policies to improve the lives of Black Women and girls
  • Be intentional about the Health issues in our communities, raise their awareness of available program for our Black families, women and girls
  • Create STEAM opportunities for the girls we mentor

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Members and our Supporters, thank you community members for your dedicated support of our programs.

Warm Regards,

Frances H. Cohen
