  • Dear Members and Friends,

    It is an honor and a pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Harriet Tubman Purple Hat Society, Incorporated, of Staten Island, New York.

    I am proud to be serving as your newly elected president for the 2018-2020 term.  Since our incorporation on January 26, 2016, we all have been committed to preserving the legacy of Harriet Tubman.  We have been working hard to fulfill our mission of empowering women to live in the spirit of Harriet Tubman by participating in cultural, social, economic and political activities that will have a positive impact on the quality of life within their communities. 

    Under my leadership, I will continue all programs implemented by Ms. Elizabeth Plair, our recent past president.  In addition, I hope to partner with community service organizations that provide services for women and children in our communities.

    Please, attend meetings, volunteer for our various committees, and support our fundraisers.  I need the support of all members to help move the organization forward.  I welcome your ideas and suggestions.   We are stronger when we work together.


    Best Regards,
    Nancy Ashon-Poku, President
