The Austin Section – National Council of Negro Women cordially invites the public to attend its semi-annual Harambee Breakfast slated for Saturday, October 26, 2013 from 10 a.m. – 12 noon at St. James Episcopal Church (Founders’ Hall) at 1941 Webberville Road.
According to Austin Section President Marilyn Johnson, Harambee means “working or pulling together for a common purpose.”   The breakfast provides an opportunity for affiliate organizations and section members to network and work towards improving the lives of Austin residents.     The Austin Section, which was founded in 1946, has three inter-related program priorities – Education, Health, and Economic Empowerment.

Tickets may be purchased from a local section member for $15.00.  If you would like to become a member of the Austin Section of NCNW in October – your breakfast is $10.00, along with payment for membership dues.  Tickets can also be purchased through Harambee Breakfast.      For more information, go to

The National Council of Negro Women is a non-profit membership organization of organizations founded in 1935 by Mary McLeod Bethune, with a mission to lead and develop women of African descent.   NCNW reaches nearly 4 million women through 39 national affiliate organizations and more than 240 sections throughout the nation. On behalf of NCNW-Austin, thank you in advance for your participation and support.  We look forward to your attendance.
