Web Site Rollout

100 Black Men of Syracuse also announced the public launch of its new Web site at www.100blackmensyr.org. The Web site was designed to enhance communication between the organization, a local chapter of 100 Black Men of America and the community it serves as well as potential donors, business sponsors and partnering organizations.

“Our Web site is one of the primary means we will use to communicate with the outside world and showcase the work our members contribute to the mentoring, education, health and wellness and economic development programs we sponsor,” President Vincent Love said. “The site will serve as a hub for our members and potential members seeking to become involved with the mission of 100 Black Men of Syracuse.”

Visitors will also find links to the organization’s social media sites on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
