Member Organizations

Members of the Coalition work together in committees to create action plans for dismantling systemic racism.

Educational Resources

Our Coalition is powered by a critical analysis of racism, and we have collected the key resources we used to get educated!

Almost twenty-seven years ago, NELCWIT was a lifesaver for me and my three kids, and none of us have forgotten. I'm just sharing this with you to let you know what a huge impact the courageous and dedicated women of NELCWIT, and the vital, top-notch services they provide, have had across time. I can't, and wouldn't want to, imagine my life without your grace and wisdom.
