president's message

Black lives matter. Over the past few weeks, we have been listening, learning, and acknowledging how much work there is to be done to dismantle systemic racism in the United States. The long history of discrimination and police brutality has taken a heavy toll on our Black community. We see the overwhelming grief, pain, and anger. NCCDA stands with NCDA against racism and for social justice.
