Early this year the members of The Coalition of Black Men approved an affiliation with the national organization, The 100 Black Men of America (The 100). We believe that having a chapter of The 100 in Portland will be an excellent resource for improving our community by committing to its four areas of focus; Mentoring, Education, Health & Wellness, and Economic Empowerment. If you would like to learn more about the organization and these focus areas go to http://www.100blackmen.org. To follow along in our transition efforts visit our 100 Black Men of America archive. If you are interested in becoming a charter member in the 100 Black Men of America: Portland Chapter please print out the application form, fill it out, and return it at one of our general meetings.
