Women of Color: Organizations & Projects. A National Directory. Second Edition.
Women of Color Resource Center, Berkeley, CA.
This directory lists approximately 250 organizations for women of color, organizations that were founded or led by women of color, and those in which the membership and constituency are primarily women of color. Each listing contains essential contact information and, where available, information about the organization's mission, constituency, and programs. E-mail addresses and Web sites are included where available. The list is indexed by state, race/ethnicity, and central issue, with some overlap among the issue categories. Thirty-six of these organizations identify themselves as primarily concerned with educational issues; most of these are based in cities. Fifty-nine organizations are identified as having a major focus on employment, economic development, and job training, and 40 emphasize their connection to mentoring, scholarships, and youth services. Other areas into which organizations are grouped include cultural, health, women's concerns, and substance abuse. (SLD)
