Make an Impact at NACAC Conference 2023.

NACAC is proud to leverage NACAC Conference 2023 to amplify our attendees’ voices on issues that matter most to them. Throughout the conference, there will be opportunities to engage in advocacy and community efforts that support local, state, and national initiatives.

Support Literacy in Baltimore

NACAC is collaborating with the Maryland Book Bank to help Maryland’s young readers develop critical literacy skills.

We invite conference attendees to bring a book to donate at the “Book Nook” on the Expo Hall floor (booth 1323). Books left here throughout the conference will be donated to the Maryland Book Bank at the conclusion of the event.

You may also purchase a book from the Maryland Book Bank wish list!

CLLCTIVLY & The Power of One Campaign

CLLCTIVLY is a place-based social change organization centering Black genius, narrative power, social networks, and resource mobilization. CLLCTIVLY seeks to end the fragmentation and duplication of programs through relationships and collaboration, increase the capacity of Black-led organizations through direct investment and shared learning experiences, and serve as a resource for the local community that seeks to find, fund, and partner with Black social change organizations. Since its launch in 2019, CLLCTIVLY has mobilized over $2,000,000 in no-strings-attached grants to support Black-led organizations.

This year, CLLCTIVLY is launching the Black Futures Fund, a five-year, $100 million dollar campaign to support Black power-building and movement-based organizations across the state of Maryland. The fund will help to ensure these groups have the sustained investments and resources necessary to eradicate systemic and institutionalized racism. The Maryland-based replication of the California Black Freedom Fund will mobilize an organizing effort of historic proportions, resourcing and bringing together racial justice advocates and coalitions from across the state to develop and advance a unified, liberatory agenda centering the needs and priorities of Maryland’s Black communities.

We invite NACAC Conference 2023 attendees to demonstrate the power of one and the power of us by donating just $1 to this initiative.
