  • Encourage African American women to engage in political activities beginning with registering to vote.
  • Confront forces in the cultural, economic and community environment that threaten the physical, mental and moral well-being of African American youth, especially those most at risk.
  • Develop and encourage African American women to run for office at all levels.
  • Develop and advocate public policy positions, which advance the political, social, educational and economic interests of African American women, their families and communities.
  • Encourage the appointment of African American women at all levels of government and political parties.
  • Empower African American women to act as role models for the next generation of leaders.
 

The National Congress of Black Women, Inc., Los Angeles Chapter (LAC), continues to generate an overwhelming interest among our community leaders both locally and nationally. Such interest has invited LAC 2014 participation and program assistance in many areas including, but not limited to:

 
Program Initiatives

HEALTHCARE REFORM (LAC) – Preventable disease and disability have a profound impact on the health of African Americans in the greater Los Angeles communities as well as the world. The National Congress of Black Women, Inc., Los Angles Chapter works to develop increased emphasis on disease prevention, health promotion and healthy lifestyles that will improve health outcomes, help improve quality of life and help to control health care costs.

MILITARY FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES (LAC) – Develop financial, spiritual, psychological and social supporting and mentoring relationships among the civilian community and military personnel and their families stationed in Los Angels and abroad.

WORKFORCE HOUSING – NCBW works to develop affordable housing for single women who are key to the workforce of every urban city. Many cannot afford to live in cities in which they work and must travel long distances to work. Ten years ago we first delved into housing concerns when we were able to secure a home for the Thompson quintuplets.

WOMEN'S ABUSE/DOMESTIC VIOLENCE – NCBW provides counseling and shares resources needed with women and children who are victims of domestic violence and abuse.

COLLEGE FOR TEENS PROGRAM – College for Teens is a comprehensive youth developmental program model that is multifaceted. It consists of an after school tutorial and enrichment program, a career development/mentoring and life skills program, a summer college campus residency program, the C. Delores Tucker Study Abroad Program, and the Shirley Chisholm Civil Rights Journey.
