Who we are

The mission of the National Center for Race Amity is to cultivate race amity as the key tool as well as the end goal in advancing access, equity, social justice and unity.

The National Center for Race Amity (NCRA) develops forums, workshops, service projects, films and other initiatives to advance cross-racial and cross-cultural friendship.

We move the public discourse on race beyond the blame-grievance-rejection framework to one that recognizes and celebrates our ability to overcome racial prejudice through association, amity and collaborative action.

NCRA was established in January 2010 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Boston, Massachusetts. It received its founding grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and enjoys ongoing support from corporate and organizational sponsors, generous individual donors, and income generated by conferences, publications and other programs.
