The Links Incorporated , founded in 1946, is a national non-profit women’s service organization of approximately 10,000 African-American women in the United States, Germany, the Bahamas and South Africa. The Links, Incorporated is one of the oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of women who are committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry.
Closer to home, there are several local Links chapters in the Bay Area – Oakland, San Francisco, Peninsula, San Jose, South Bay and Alameda Contra Costa. The Alameda Contra Costa Chapter of the Links (ACCL) is comprised of African-American women residing in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. Founded over 20 years ago, ACCL supports local service agencies serving primarily low-income, inner-city youth and their families through volunteer and fundraising efforts. One of our own ACCL members, Glenda Newell-Harris, is our newly-elected National President. To see more, click here.
