Jona’ L. Hodges, Chapter President
Welcome to the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc., Columbia (SC) Chapter website. Advocacy and empowerment for women and girls of color is what initially inspired the organization of this group. An interest in the transformation of the lives of women, girls and families of African American descent in Columbia, SC provided the impetus and passion to move forward with its formation. We are a progressive group of professional women dedicated to the ideals of service to others and gladly welcome professional women such as yourself to join us in our efforts to advocate on behalf of black women and girls in the areas of health, education, and economic empowerment.
The purpose of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc., Columbia (SC) Chapter shall be to:
- Foster principles of equal rights and opportunities.
- Promote the awareness of Black culture.
- Provide a forum for Black Women to address educational, political, social and health-related issues.
- Develop the potential of the membership for effective leadership and participation in civic affairs.
- Cooperate with other organizations to achieve mutual goals.
- Provide an effective network for Black Women in order to help make a difference to women by giving them the opportunity of self-development as leaders in our community.
We believe in gender equity, inclusion, respect, racial and social justice, integrity and accountability, economic empowerment, and collaboration.
