Welcome to the National Coalition of 100 Black Women-Memphis Chapter website.  I bring you greetings on behalf of the Memphis Chapter. Our mission is to advocate on behalf of black women and girls to promote leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education, and economic empowerment. We aim to achieve this mission through strategic alliances and civic engagement.

African American women face tremendous challenges in the areas of Economic Empowerment, Education and Health.  As a result, our chapter programs are designed and implemented in response to critical national issues that affect the black community.  Our goals are to be transformative and address the current issues, concerns and needs that impact the lives of African American women and girls.

I continue to appreciate the organization’s mission, vision and goals which are very much aligned with my personal beliefs about women and the critical role we play in society.  It is for these reasons that I am passionate about our programs, activities and presence in the community.

My ongoing involvement in civic and community organizations, as well as my professional skills and expertise continues to allow me the opportunity to establish relationships and partnerships with many local, state and national leaders and organizations that can be a resource to support the local chapter to accomplish its mission. 

I am humbled and honored to be elected by the membership to serve as the President of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women-Memphis Chapter.  My commitment to our chapter is demonstrated through my leadership skills, and having held positions at the local level as 1st Vice-President of Programs, 2nd Vice-President of Finance and Fund Development, Economic Empowerment Director and serving at the National level on the Public Policy Committee and currently the Education Committee.

Warm Regards,

Katrina Thompson, President

National Coalition of 100 Black Women-Memphis Chapter
