The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI) is a national political organization. It consists of a "coalition of 34,000 African-American and Latino churches working together to end racial disparities in healthcare, technology, education, housing, and the environment." The NBCI was formed in 1991.[1]

History

The Initiative began in 1991 when a group of African American ministers in Washington, D.C. came together to form the DC Black Church Initiative. The initial purpose was to address race in healthcare services. In 2008, the Board of Directors wanted the NBCI to begin major initiatives aimed at helping achieve different aspects of the Initiative's mission.[1]

Leadership

Founding member Anthony Evans is the president of the Initiative. Debra Bagby-Coley is the chair of the Board of Directors.[2]

Issues

Current NBCI programs include the Health Emergency Declaration, preventive health programs, the Dropout Prevention Initiative, the Housing Initiative, the Financial Literacy Initiative, Small Business Enterprise, the Baby Fund, the Education Initiative, the Digital Divide Initiative, the Civil Society Initiative and the Environmental Initiative.[1]
