The National Congress of Black Women, Inc, Inland Empire Chapter was created by Dr. McBean, as a summer intern during her graduate field studies in Washington, DC. Using her laptop and emails she pulled together her 10 of her classmates and 12 friends and colleagues to join her in establishing a new Inland chapter.
Our story continues as the National Alliance of Free Women and men with a new beginning and mission.
On August 29, 2015, we made history when the National Alliance of Free women and men was established. Today is a great day.
The National Alliance of Free Women, Inc. became the first newly formed and installed national organization as a new chapter in the state of California. We planned and executed the endeavor in less then one year.Our formation and installation will be recorded in the historical record of the state as revolutionary and groundbreaking. We have set a standard and president for all future free women everywhere to strive for and achieve.
The National Alliance of Free Women, Inc. (NAOFW) is a nonprofit 501 (C) (3) tax exempt organization that focuses on improving the quality and life of women and girls every where. Our mission is to teach, train, and role modle exemplary actions and behaviors through education, leadership, participation, commitment, and activism. We are chartered by the state government of California and organized primarily and exclusively for social, educational, recreational, or charitable purposes. The oath of improving the quality of life of women and girls everywhere is a universal cause of which will resonate with women and girls globally. Women and girls who suffer suppression, undue degradation, segregation, subjugation, exploitation and violence internationally will rally around this cause.
What we accomplished was no small feat. Our efforts will be emulated and replicated by other women who wish and desire to become free women and girls, and we hope that the freeing of women and girls will become a national norm.
Our name carries and imply a deep and profound meaning and message. We have now become trail blazers in this twenty-first century, similarly to the "Suffragette" in the nineteenth century. And, because of the oath that we all pledge and collectively took, we are all obligated to embrace this oath will convection and determination to work toward change for others. And lastly, in addition to making history on August 29, 2015, we will become a part of history as it will be written and recorded for all future centuries to read about and bear witness to.
