From The President's Desk
It is both an honor and pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Charlotte Section of the National Council of Negro Women, Inc. Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune founded our organization in 1935 in New York City. She was an educator, stateswoman, philanthropist, humanitarian, and civil rights activist.
The Charlotte NCNW Section is a group of phenomenal women committed to continuing the legacy of Dr. Bethune by being visible and active leaders in the community, advocating for children, and empowering women of African descent. We stand committed and united to making positive change in our community now and for future generations.
Charlotte NCNW Section’s most valuable assets are the Women who make up our membership. Our members have worked collectively to elevate our families and communities in Mecklenburg and surrounding counties through community service activities. We have fed the hungry, clothed the needy, cared for senior citizens, helped the homeless, and mentored our youth. Our National Chair Dr. Johnnetta B. Cole offered these inspiring words regarding having a vision.
“While it is true that without a vision the people perish, it is doubly true that without action the people and their vision perish as well.”
I encourage you to take a moment to visit our website to learn more about NCNW both locally and nationally. We hope that something will inspire you to want to become a part of our legacy.
