50th ANNUAL CONFERENCE

CALL FOR PROPOSALS NOW OPEN!

NBCDI is celebrating 50 years of improving and advancing the quality of life for Black children and families through education and advocacy. We are also planning for our 50th Annual Conference. A one-of-a-kind convening that brings together the entire ecosystem that impacts Black children and families. For 50 years more than a thousand early childhood educators, K-12 teachers, administrators, social workers, health professionals, elected officials, researchers, and representatives from universities, community and faith-based organizations, business and government have gathered for our annual conference.

Last year we offered 100 workshops ranging from Early Childhood Education, Brain Development, Child Welfare, Advocacy, Public Policy, Health & Wellness, Family Engagement, Literacy, mentoring and Leadership. Recent conference speakers include: Dr. Michael Eric Dyson; Dr. Iyanla Vanzant; Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms; Dr. Aisha Ray; Dr. Howard Stevenson; Angela Rye, Esq., Geoffrey Canada; David Johns; Dr. Freeman Hrabowski; Congressman Bobby Scott; Jackie Bezos; and former Secretary of Education, John B. King Jr.

NBCDI is seeking proposals that present strengths-based, culturally relevant, and action-oriented solutions that will build the capacity of participants as they continue to mobilize to improve their schools, neighborhoods, communities and states. If you are interested in presenting at NBCDI's 50th Annual Conference, October 31-November 2, 2020 in Washington, DC access the Call for Proposals here. Submissions must be completed by Tuesday, April 14, 2020 at 11:59 p.m.
