Tenth Annual Legacy Awards Luncheon Postponement 

A notice from the Rankin/ Mon Valley/ Pittsburgh Section of NCNW, Inc. Legacy Luncheon Committee:

The safety and security of our members and guests is our highest priority. Although currently there are no reported cases of the coronavirus in Allegheny County, in light of Governor Wolf’s recommendation to cancel or postpone events with 250 or more participants, we have decided to reschedule the Tenth Annual Legacy Awards Luncheon which was to be held March 21st at the Doubletree Hotel in Monroeville.

We recommend you keep your ticket in a secure location. All tickets will be honored when our event is rescheduled. The date has yet to be determined. As we gain more information we will reach out to you with the new date.

Membership Benefits

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.

NCNW Goals

  • To advocate for and provide services to African American families
  • To work through and with diverse cooperating agencies and organizations in both public and private sectors to provide leadership, support, and outreach.
  • To extend the collective power and leadership of African American women by continuing the vision of our Founder.
  • To strengthen the economic and social position of African American women and their families.
  • To advance civil rights with special concern for women’s rights, voter education and registration, economic opportunity and health care.
  • To focus on youth development, mentoring, and excellence in education.

Join with us and give us your strength, your courage, and your determination to help African American women achieve our full and impressive potential.

If you have been looking for a place to explore opportunities, a place where you can realize your potential with the help of a positive, supportive network of sisters, NCNW is the organization for you. It is our turn to define how our nation values and respects African American women and the contributions we make to our families, our communities, and our society.

Through national programs and through the work of over 240 sections and 37 national affiliate organizations, NCNW helps women of African descent enhance their health, knowledge, and personal satisfaction and work to improve their communities.
