The National Coalition of 100 Black Women – MECCA Chapter is in its twentieth year of supporting and advocating for women and girls in the metro Atlanta area in the areas of economic development, health, and political awareness. MECCA has also been vigilant in providing access and support to our arts community as well as renewing our continued commitment to our mentees, the Little Ladies of MECCA (LLM).
Our programs and strategic alliances with corporate and community partners promote proven agendas in leadership development, health, education, and economic development. MECCA’s programs offer amazing opportunities to lend your talents and financial resources to assisting us in meeting the vast needs of women and girls in our community.
As President of NCBW-MECCA Chapter, I am excited to continue this work we have undertaken. I believe that we have a strong, deliberate force of committed women who will continue to Reach, Educate and Advocate for women and girls of color.
