Being NCA's President is both a tremendous honor, as well as a serious obligation. It is an honor, because members entrust a President with the power to lead by way of a unique role. It is an obligation, because, as a person of color, one strives to do their best for all members, as well as to honor the legacy of other NCA members of color who struggled historically and struggle contemporarily to make it a better Association. This talk will address the need for "civic activism," activism on behalf of people, as well as leading itself as change, meaning that one's very presence is both a sign of and an active part of change, as well as leading during tremendous and challenging historical circumstances.
