 The National Council of Negro Women, Inc. (NCNW) is a council of national African American women

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.

Our Method

NCNW translates its philosophy of public education, community service and advocacy into activities designed to promote a number of benefits for our constituents including:

  • Disseminating information about issues affecting African American women and their families.
  • Promoting healthy lifestyles and behaviors through wellness projects.
  • Sponsoring events such as The MLK Leadership Awards Breakfast Celebration to build on our strengths and traditional values. 
  • Training and supporting women and youth in career development and community leadership.
  • Supporting economic development and entrepreneurship.
  • Providing mentoring and educational support to our young people.
The national office of NCNW acts as a central source for program planning and seeks to fill the gaps that exist in our communities. Through its core of volunteers in 34 states, NCNW addresses local needs through organized strategies to bring the added support of a network of thousands of women whose collective efforts enhance community service and actions.

A Chat with NCNW State President Sandra Gipson  

Sandra Gipson was in the Bayarea on Tuesday, June 5th and invited the SPMS Executive Board to a "Lunch n' Chat" meeting.  Several board members were unable to attend, however, those that did had a motivating learning session.  After lunch Ms Gipson visited the FAP Council House and was impressed with its rich history.

It was obvious from our very first hello  that Ms. Gipson is an energetic person with a wealth of knowledge and ideas to lift the NCNW legacy.

She provided us with insight to  the proper communication protocol of NCNW National and State level operations.

We all acknowledged  that we learned a lot and welcome Ms. Gipson's leadership.

SPSM membes that were able to attend were:  President Thelma Bruce, Cynthia Glenn, Ethel Robinson, and Valerie Williams

"What will your legacy be, how will the community remember you?"
asked Ms Gipson
