Thank you to the Oakland Bay Area Links for their generous grant to EBCLO. We are honored to be among the organizations supported by this impressive group of women. The Links, Incorporated is an international, not-for-profit corporation, established in 1946. The membership consists of nearly 14,000 professional women of color in 281 chapters located in 41 states, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. It is one of the nation’s oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of extraordinary women who are committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry. Oakland Bay Area Links was founded in 1950 on the principles of friendship and service. The local chapter has been delivering quality programs and support for the past 66 years and has been a part of advocating for and serving those who need the most help. We are delighted to partner with Oakland Bay Area Links in this endeavor.
