Women In NAACP (W.I.N.)

The Georgia NAACP will announce the second class of our Defining Leadership Series. This series honors generations of women who have made, and are making, invaluable contributions to equality and a more just society. The NAACP historically and through recent initiatives such as Women In NAACP (W.I.N) has been a training ground for African American women in leadership. From Founder Ida B. Well continuing through Grassroot Activists such as Juanita Jackson Mitchell; Ruby Hurleyand Ella Baker to National Presidents Enola P. McMillian; Hazel Dukes; Rupert Richardson to Chairmans Margaret Bush Wilson, Myrlie Evers-Williams and Roslyn M. Brock; unbought and unbossed women have lead the Nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization at all levels.
Throughout March, Adult Branches, College Chapters and Youth Councils will learn more about the selected Honorees and will be encouraged to take concerted action in the name of a particular Honoree. What better way of honoring those who have made or are making history then by making some of your own!
