The National Council of Negro Women, Inc. (NCNW) is a council of national African American women's organizations and community-based sections. Founded in 1935, the NCNW mission is to lead, develop, and advocate for
women of African descent as they support their families and
communities. NCNW fulfills this purpose through research, advocacy, and
national and community-based services and programs on issues of health,
education, and economic empowerment in the United States and Africa.
With its 39 national affiliates and more than 240 sections, NCNW is a
501(c)3 organization with an outreach to nearly four million women.
It is our pledge to make a lasting contribution to all that is finest and best in America, to cherish and enrich her heritage of freedom and progress by working for the integration of all her people regardless of race, creed or national origin, into her spiritual, social, cultural, and civic life, and thus aid her to achieve the glorious destiny of a true and unfettered democracy.
