National Race Amity Conferences

NCRA’s flagship initiative is the annual National Race Amity Conference, generally held in November each year. The conference brings together prominent authors, thought leaders, activists, students, and others who share practical experience and learning about harnessing interracial partnerships in pursuit of access, equity and social justice.

Theme:  Toward E Pluribus Unum: Sharing Our Work Within and Across Sectors

Dates: November 14-16, 2024

The 2024 National Race Amity Conference will focus on building a broader and more connected national community in the work to advance access, equity and social justice. To that end we are focusing on purposely fostering new forms of partnerships and collaboration across sectors — including business, nonprofit/government, education, religion, arts, sports and entertainment, and student sectors.

Roots of the Race Amity Movement

The National Race Amity Conferences draw inspiration from and continue the legacy of the First National Race Amity Convention, held on May 21, 1921 in Washington, D.C.

From the Convention’s Mission Statement:

“The great work we have to do and for which this conference is called is the establishment of amity between the white and colored people of our land. When we have put our own house in order, then we may be trusted to carry the message of universal peace to all mankind.”
