The Greater New Orleans Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women was chartered in 1988 based on the founding principles of its parent organization. Its members work to address common issues within our communities, our families and our personal lives while promoting gender and racial equity.

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women has thousands of members with chapters in 25 states and the District of Columbia with the purpose of meeting the needs of its members and empowering black women.

The women of the coalition are physicians, dentists, lawyers, judges, corporate executives and an array of other positions from across the public and private sectors. It takes this wealth of resource talent to achieve the organization’s goals as well as to effectively engage other organizations, corporations and influential individuals.
