Community Development
Why is Community Development Important? 

Community Development is of paramount importance to the African American community. Human rights, equity, diversity, participation in society, and access to resources are essential to a life of dignity, fulfillment and wealth building.  A century of activism has raised awareness of where and how we can do better as a nation. Sadly, over that time, the application of many reforms have not been fair and balanced when it comes to Black people.  There is a great deal of work to be done.


At the National Black Empowerment Council we are creating impactful programming and activating our national network on reform efforts and community development programs.  We are also bringing together companies, organizations, and leaders of conscience and influence from outside the African American community into campaigns to support our efforts.
