SANTA CLARA COUNTY SECTION
Founded in 1935 by Mary McLeod Bethune, the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) has grown to 200 community-based sections, including the Santa Clara County section. These sections span across 32 states, incorporating 38 national organizational affiliates - connecting nearly 3 million women and men.
The National Council of Negro Women's mission is to lead, advocate for and empower women of African descent, their families and communities.
As an “organization of organizations,” programs sponsored by NCNW focus on critical concerns we call “Four for the Future”: education, health, entrepreneurship and value. To learn more about our programs, visit our national website at ncnw.org.
