Eon S. Nichols is Partner and Vice-Chair of the Real Estate, Corporate, Finance and Non-Profit groups at Cuddy & Feder and serves on the board of African American Men of Westchester (AAMW).
Q: What is the mission of African American Men of Westchester?
A: AAMW has been around for over 30 years. Its mission is to help address issues related to education, youth empowerment, domestic violence awareness and environmental justice. AAMW is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization composed of African American males who have made significant contributions to charitable and community-based organizations throughout Westchester County.
Q. What types of programs are offered through AAMW?
A: There are several programs available that are designed to enrich the lives of young people and foster economic development such as the Business Skills Olympics, health fairs, educational forums, and the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Legacy Youth Awards just to name a few. The tagline of AAMW is “We Make a Difference” and we really do.
Q: Why are you passionate about the causes you’re a part of?
A: I have been on the board of the African American Men of Westchester since 2012 and have chaired its Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Youth Awards Luncheon for several years now. This serves as a great example of the importance of highlighting young people in our community who are committed to giving back in the spirit of Dr. King’s teachings. It’s wonderful to see the teenagers who are honored at the event and hear them share how much giving back to their community has been an invaluable experience. I love being on the board of AAMW because we are a small organization with a fierce passion and focus on giving back. We are committed to supporting one another and our community at large through excellent programs and a robust support network.
We celebrate AAMW and the great work they are doing throughout Westchester County.
