The Rankin/Mon Valley/Pittsburgh Section of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) was chartered in 2010 . . . inspired by the legendary Dr. Dorothy I. Height, who grew up in the Rankin area where her activism began. Throughout the history of this Section, we have strived to carry out her legacy through such activities as turkey basket giveaways to qualified families duriing the holiday season, honoring our elder role models, fighting for justice and equality, advocating for our African American families and communities, promoting youth leadership, as well as various other activities. Our health emphasis at this time is heart health awareness.
We could absolutely use your assistance and support as we attempt to further the vision of the esteemed educator Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, who founded NCNW in 1935, then passed the torch on to Dr. Dorothy I. Height, who presided over the organization for forty years. Remember . . . we are stronger when we stand together! You may call 412-953-9583, if you desire to become involved.
