The NCRA’s overall mission has the cultivation of race amity as its key tool as well as its end goal in advancing access, equity, social justice and unity.
Why Race Amity
Who We Are

The National Center for Race Amity (NCRA) was established in January 2010. It is based in Boston, Massachusetts and received its founding grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. A sustainable organization, NCRA’s programs generate income to support itself and its programs. The National Center for Race Amity has several initiatives: expansion of the Campus Conversations on Race model in a national network of colleges that employ the strategy of training student co-facilitators to guide peer group discussions on race and ethnicity; development of theater based race amity education programs targeting middle school students; impacting the public discourse on race through the annual National Race Amity Conference and other events and forums, and organizing the Towards E Pluribus Unum initiative which seeks to establish National Race Amity Day.
