North Dakotans have a magnificent heritage exemplified in the Preamble of our State Constitution, “We, the people of North Dakota, grateful to Almighty God for the blessing of civil and religious liberty, do ordain and establish this constitution.”

Welcome to the ND page of Concerned Women for America!

It is our mission to honor our rich heritage which recognizes Almighty God, in order to strengthen the traditional family.

The vision of CWA North Dakota is to challenge and inspire others to be effective instruments of God.

God’s Word is true! We look to Him for the path of life, for in His presence is fullness of joy. Psalm 16:11
