I joined the National counsel of Negro Women years ago, I went to the trainings they had, i really enjoyed being there. I also became a mentor with them I've learned a lot through the program. When I tried to contact them they were gone. I want to know how can I be involved because now so much is going on in the nations Capital. There young people out here need mentors. There is so much violence here in DC, especially with our innocent babies. This needs to stop now. We need to protect our communities.
