Our Mission

The mission of the National Council of Negro Women, Inc. (NCNW) is to harness the power of African American and other minority women to ensure assess to and full participation in the socio-economic-political systems which impact upon the quality of life for all persons.

Our Pledge



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, civic, and economic life, and thus, aid her to achieve the glorious destiny of a true and unfettered democracy.

The significant challenges facing our families and communities today demand that we find ways to optimize our resources and engage our communities. Therefore, I would like to reach out to young ladies and women of all ages to become a member and become an active participant of the Metropolitan Sun Section of NCNW. We are an energetic group of women who helps to fulfill the purpose of our mission through advocacy by providing community-based services and programs on issues of health, education, and economic empowerment.


In the words of Mary McLeod Bethune, " The true worth of a race must be measured by the character of its womanhood."


We look forward to seeing you and thank you for visiting our web site.
