Mission of The National Council Of Negro Women, Inc.
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. For more information about NCNW, please contact us.
The objective of the Potomac Valley Section, NCNW is to strive to be a body that is committed to answering our call and to go beyond ourselves to provide, in accordance with the National by-laws, educational, social cultural, spiritual, and charitable self-help projects. The Section also supports and advances the philosophy/mission of TPCBC and the goals of the National Council of Negro Women, Inc.
