Every generation of Americans faces new and significant challenges to free expression. For almost 50 years, NCAC has acted as a first responder to protect this freedom, which is both a fundamental human right and a keystone of democracy in the ever-changing American nation. We promote freedom of thought and inquiry and oppose censorship. When controversy occurs, we encourage and facilitate dialogue between divergent voices and perspectives, including those that have historically been silenced.
The Diverse Books for All Coalition is a national consortium of nonprofits and membership organizations working together to increase access to affordable, high-quality children's books by and about diverse races and cultures.
The Latinx Kidlit Book Festival is a FREE virtual celebration of Latinx KidLit authors, illustrators, and books for all students, educators and book lovers around the globe.

The sessions are geared toward all schools, educators, students and book lovers, not just those identifying as Latinx. Everyone is welcome!
Literary Agents of Change, the nonprofit born out of American Association of Literary Agents' (AALA) Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, was formed to help dismantle the barriers to entry into a career as a literary agent for members of historically underrepresented groups, particularly people of color while recognizing the systems of overlapping oppressions in regard to race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, class, and ability.
