The big day may have come and gone, but keep in touch as we’re always up to something new and exciting.
The work of NCBWR centers community engagement through peer support using technology in practice to reach the masses as we build healthy ecosystems online and offline for us, by us, to serve us as a peer-led coalition of partners. Our innovative approaches to manifest wealth and excellence community solutions tool creates engagement beyond borders to reduce harm, increase protection, and advocate for its citizenship. We activate community to care while connecting the dots to equitable resources of care. The community can do " nothing for us without us" ~Tamika Mallory
When a people understands their strength and that culture that honors their talent and sense of belonging, they can achieve success. Belonging does not mean one size fits all. We must create a culture of well-being that respects the autonomy of individuals to be a culture and not a subculture of a larger society. Our unique strengths and ability to build alternatives to dominant institutional cultures is liberating.
When we create a culture of well-being that understands the importance of "do no harm;" one that prioritizes prevention, intervention, and advocacy for the harm that has been committed; than we pave the way to develop interdependence with one another through a relational culture over transaction. We have a the ability to change the narrative with our skills. Listen, connect, and weave a fabric that supports.
The transformation of a people occurs when we create cultures of wellbeing at home, work, school, and community. In this culture when can learn to heal from the adverse experiences and take intentional steps toward our personal liberation and wellness. In this moment we are able to heal and support those around us.
According to Healthy People 2030, there are five social determinants of health that must be considered for the well-being of a community: economic stability, quality education, quality healthcare, safe neighborhoods and built environment, social support, and equitable distribution of resources.

Who benefits from building healthier communities?
There is always something new...
NCBWR empowers individuals, families, and communities. As we empower, we are powered by the possibilities. Coming Winter 2022 is our new Journal of Lived Experience (JLE). JLE is a periodical that contains stories of lived experts and articles written by people with lived experience reporting results of an issue area that they are centering on their transformational journey.
The National Coalition of Black Women Rising, 501.c.3. is committed to well-being as the highest form of equity from theory to practice and beyond. The concerns, successes, gaps, and recommendations can only be understood by those with lived experience.
We are more than advocacy, we are solutionist. We are building healthier communities with alternatives to dominant institutional cultures, by creating cultures of well-being that see, hear, and understand us as the lived experts. Your support in this season is appreciated. Please donate to our work as we leave a legacy that we can be proud of.
