The National Center for Race Amity uses the cultivation of race amity as its key tool toward its end goal in advancing access, equity, social justice, and unity.
“Race relations in America will not substantially improve unless the public discourse on race moves beyond the blame-grievance-rejection framework to one that recognizes and celebrates our ability to overcome racial prejudice through association, amity, and collaboration.”
