It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Montgomery County, Maryland Section of the National Council of Negro Women, Inc. (MCNCNW.)
Mary McLeod Bethune founded our organization in 1935 in New York City. She was an educator, stateswoman, philanthropist, humanitarian, and civil rights activist.
MCNCNW has continued the legacy of Dr. Bethune to lead, advocate for and empower women of African descent, their families and communities. Our members have worked collectively to elevate our families and communities in Montgomery County and are committed to building better communities through education, collaboration and community service.
Our members have fed the hungry, clothed the needy, cared for the senior citizens, helped the homeless and mentored middle and high school young ladies.
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.”
Please browse our website to get more information on how we serve the Montgomery County community. Please visit our Membership page, if you believe in our mission and share our vision.
