The National Council of Negro Women, Inc. is open to all women and men who share a commitment to empowering women of African descent, their families and communities..

NCNW’s unique “organization of organizations” structure assures our ability to collectively use our strength to generate power and the potential to improve our own quality of life, help African American communities flourish and aid our sisters in Africa.

NCNW represents over 25,000 members and contributors, and a connection to nearly 3 million women through our affiliate organizations at the national, state and local levels; speaking out on issues of concern to our members including education, health, entrepreneurship and value. We call it Four for the Future.

Benefits of membership include our SISTERS Newsletter, members-only area of the website, and networking with like-minded persons in more than 200 community-based sections in 32 states. Life and Legacy Life membership entitles you to invitations to exclusive events. However, the greatest benefit of membership is knowing that you belong to an organization that is advocating on behalf of African American women, their families and communities.

Dr. Height once said, empowerment is the most important gift we give ourselves. When we hear, but do not absorb the negatives, we are reminded of our strengths. Change comes not at the direction of a nation, but at the insistence of its people. The unity of membership drives that power.
