The National Conference of Puerto Rican Women, Inc.


The National Conference of Puerto Rican Women, Inc. (NACOPRW) was founded in Washington, D.C., in 1972, as a non-profit, non-partisan organization to promote the full participation of Puerto Rican and other Hispanic women in their economic, social and political life in the United States and Puerto Rico.

NACOPRW provides training, mentorship and leadership development at the local and national level through workshops and institutes during the annual convention, and through chapter programs.  We preserve our Puerto Rican and Latino heritage through cultural activities and events.  We seek justice and give voice to the preservation of civil, health, educational and other rights through the dissemination of information, networking, collaboration and advocacy with other national and local groups, and through education, celebration, community and civil involvement.

"Preserving our heritage and rights through mentorship and leadership for a better tomorrow"
