Women in the NAACP (WIN) is an official committee of the NAACP. The purposes of WIN are:

  • to enhance the leadership role of women
  • to serve as an advocacy vehicle for issues affecting women and children
  • to advocate for the positive development of children
  • to support the on-going work of the NAACP and its units, especially civil and cultural activities to enhance membership
Each region has a coordinator designated as Regional Vice Coordinator. Each state shall designate a WIN State Chair.  Each local NAACP branch may establish a WIN chapter.


WIN’s national theme is “Outstretched Hands and Open Hearts to Women and Children.”


  • WIN membership is open to any person who is an active member of the NAACP upon payment of the WIN membership fee.
  • Membership dues are ten dollars for regular members, of which five dollars will go to the local WIN Unit.
