Dear NCNW Members and Friends:
It is my privilege to welcome you to NCNW’s Internet Home Page. Our organization was formed more than eighty years ago by Mary McLeod Bethune and NCNW’s mission remains as relevant today as it was in 1935. Black women still need a unified voice to address the economic, social cultural and spiritual needs of their families and communities.
I want to thank our board, affiliates, state and community leaders for your support of NCNW and your enthusiasm for our mission. NCNW’s affiliates have combined membership of nearly three million women and men. Our community-based sections operate through approximately 200 sections in 31 states with more than 25,000 members. I appreciate the vote of confidence that you have placed in me and the executive committee to build on NCNW’s proud legacy of social uplift, economic security and moral courage. Together, we pledge to carry out the mandate to govern responsibly and continue to strengthen our organizational structure.
We invite you to visit the website often to get the latest reports on our progress. I urge you to affirm your faith in each other and our cause as we work toward the goals of universal equality, justice and freedom.
