The Brooklyn Club

“SISTERS ON THE MOVE FOR COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT & POSITIVE CHANGE”

Welcome Message From Our President 

Thank you for visiting the Brooklyn Club of The National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women's Clubs, Incorporated.  Affectionately know as the Brooklyn B&Ps our history dates back to 1944 when our illustrious National President and celebrated Brooklyn resident, Ruth Handy, called 21 prominent African-American women of Brooklyn to organize the Brooklyn Club.  They included some of the first African-American Public School Teachers, Doctors, Journalists, Funeral Directors, Social Workers, Music Teachers and other Entrepreneurs.  They received the national charter in November 1945 in Chicago at the National Convention.

 The Brooklyn Club has been providing award winning programs in the National theme of L.E.T.S.

Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Technology and Service -  Producing our programs allow members of our club to showcase their skills and expertise and support the needs of our community.  We will continue our efforts to lift as we climb by developing our own leadership skills while developing strong mentoring relationships.  

As the current President, I would be remiss if I did not extend and invitation to become a member or of the Brooklyn Club.  Help us build a sustainable sisterhood that continues the legacy of community empowerment and uplifting the quality of life for our Brooklyn communities.   

Partner with us to strengthen families, provide opportunities for our youth and make a positive impact as "Sisters on the move for community empowerment and positive change".

Standing in Sisterhood,

Lorrie Ayers-Hutchinson

President
