NCRA has engaged the strategic planning organization, Changing Our World, to assist in developing short- and long-term plans for the Center.

Changing Our World is a leading philanthropy and management consulting firm whose team of impact consultants works toward positive transformative change on the global stage. Led by CEO Brian Crimmins, the firm provides support for strategy, marketing, capacity building, communications and more. Previous clients include the Archdiocese of New York, CARE, Genesis Health System, and the UN Foundation. Changing Our World served as a key collaborator in the establishment of the hugely successful “Ice Bucket Challenge” campaign.

NCRA’s founding executive director, Dr. William “Smitty” Smith, says,

“This is a much-needed step in moving the National Center for Race Amity to become a major national service organization in impacting the public discourse on race in the nation.”

Changing Our World CEO Brian Crimmins shared the following in a statement to NCRA,

“Changing Our World is both honored and thrilled about our newly established partnership with NCRA. NCRA’s mission of the cultivation of race amity as a key tool towards advancing access, equity, social justice, and unity, is one we, as a whole firm, are proud to call you partners on.”
