The Milwaukee Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women (NCBW) celebrated their 2nd anniversary at Chic Lounge, 131 N, Jackson Street on Tuesday August 24th. The event hosted by Chic Lounge owner Rita Rander was attended by business, corporate and government community leaders.
“We are committed to being engaged in resolving and solving quality of life issues of importance to our city, our community and women of color, “said NCBW founding president Michelle Hinton.
NCBW has been involved in advocating people of color to exercise their right to vote by adopting the Keenan Health Center polling site since its inception and hosting a first annual Community Legislative Day in August. The legislative day paired political leaders with members of the community in a round table style fashion to discuss matters of job creation, education, politics and health care concerns.
NCBW members have participated in supporting the following events; Women of the World Health Conference, and Wisconsin Diabetes Association Walk Run event, as well as symposiums on HIV/AIDS and a variety of community health and resource fairs.
