WIN – Women In the NAACP

Women in the NAACP (WIN) seeks to enhance the leadership role of women, serve as an advocacy vehicle for issues affecting women and children, and advocate for the positive development of children.

The purpose of W.I.N. is to:

  • Enhance the leadership role of women,
  • Serve as an advocacy vehicle for issues affecting women and children.
  • To advocate for the positive development of children
  • Support the on-going work of the NAACP and its units, especially civil and cultural activities to enhance membership.

The Norwich branch’s WIN Committee has sponsored a “Trailblazers’ Tea” to celebrate the potential and the accomplishments of women throughout history. The event included speakers from the local and regional area who share their experience, drive and wisdom with the members, friends and supporters of the WIN Committee.

One of our finest achievements was been the formation and operation of the WINners Academy. WINners’ Academy is not a school, but a program for young women to help inspire, inform and prepare them for today, tomorrow and the future.

Past sessions of the WINners’ Academy have included information on:

  • Personal Financial Education
  • History of the NAACP
  • Significant Women in History
  • Nutrition, Fitness and Personal Health
