Join Our Sisterhood

The National Council of Negro Women is an “organization of organizations” (comprised of 330 campus and community-based sections and 32 national women’s organizations) that enlightens, inspires and connects more than 2,000,000 women and men. NCNW is open to all persons without regard to gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.

Do you want to become more involved in strengthening families, creating economic opportunity and building healthy communities? If so, NCNW is for you. The Washington Section welcomes all who believe in NCNW's mission and offers you a positive, uplifting, and supportive network of sisters (and brothers) who share a passion for NCNW's mission.

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.
