The United Order of Tents

Eastern District 3

The United Order of Tents is a Black women's fraternal order located in Brooklyn, NY. Established in the 19th century, The United Order of Tents originally provided aid to those escaping slavery via the Underground Railroad. Now, our current mission is to serve our community, especially our elderly neighbors. We recognize and solve local issues through our bond of sisterhood.
