The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Chattanooga Chapter, Inc. will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a virtual fundraising gala on Friday at 7 p.m.
For 25 years, the Chattanooga Chapter of the NCBW has partnered and served in the community toward its vision that Black women and girls will live in a world where socioeconomic inequity does not exist. It has provided college scholarships to hundreds of young ladies in the city in their pursuit of higher learning, served as mentors through the Sista-to-Sista mentoring program with the students at the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy, hosted numerous workshops, health fairs, symposiums and provided resources to educate women about their health and financial wellbeing. It has hosted public forums for political candidates so that people are more informed voters. And, it has visited with local, state and federal elected officials to represent and be the voice of Black women and girls.
NCBW President Deborah Flagg said, “As the president of this illustrious chapter of NCBW, I am proud of our rich history and I am excited for the future of advocating for empowerment and economic change.”
NCBW Fundraising Chair Leslie Mayfield said, “I am proud to be a part of such an amazing organization that has impacted the lives of so many women and girls for over two decades. As we continue to carry out our mission, I look forward to making an even bigger difference in this community with my NCBW sisters.”
