Advocating for the health, education, and economic empowerment of women

Greetings and Welcome,

Our vision for this Section Year is: Effectively Position Members For Even Greater Community Outreach.

It is with a grateful heart and extreme pleasure welcoming you to the virtual home of the Northern Virginia (NoVA) Section of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW). The members of the Section and I are pleased to share with you exciting details of our non-profit organization.

We are honored by our extraordinary legacy. NCNW was founded by a cutting-edge women, Mary McLeod Bethune (1875-1955) in 1935, as an “organization of organizations” to represent national and international concerns of Black women.

Having served the Northern Virginia area for more than 40 years, the NoVA Section leads the way through volunteer efforts, to positively impact the lives of families in our community. Through our monthly projects, we strive to fill the gap of those in need and promote education, health, economic empowerment and cultural initiatives.

Learn more about what we do on this website and please consider becoming a member or supporter. We need help providing greater service to our community.

Should you have any questions or require further information, please feel free to contact us.


Cathy P. Riddick-Brown
President, NoVA Section of NCNW
