The Section started as an interest group in September
2015, however, it was founded as a chartered Section on
April 27, 2016 and is operating with over one hundred
members in Broward County Florida. The members,
however many, have committed to support, commit,
educate and advocate in this great County for women and
girls of African descent as they care for their families and

The Broward County Section has had many opportunities to
care for the communities in which they are called to serve.
Being a part of the Foster Child transition, we provided
duffle bags and toys for children of veterans. Our Easter
EGGtravaganza encouraged, educated and empowered
children in various neighborhoods. Our Global Initiatives
purchased goats to provide continuous food for African
families. They also sent an array of toiletries and other
items to Haiti for families after a devastating hurricane.

As president, I am proud to be a part of this Section’s
commitment to the community. When you join the Section,
there is much work to be done, and we love to share that
responsibility with those who come prepared to serve a
great cause. We will continue to move the legacy of our
founder, Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, forward. Her zeal for
education, empowerment and advocacy live on in the
committees and initiatives we choose to foster. Our
President Emeritus, Dr. Dorothy I. Height, also left us a tall
order – and with our current President, Ingrid Saunders
Jones, the legacy lives on!
