2020 NLC NATIONAL CONVENTION

August 6-8

Philadelphia, PA

This summer, nearly 400 community influencers, change agents, and next-generation leaders will gather in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection to hone their skills, share ideas and inspirations, and cultivate a sense of community and connection that will drive their work for the year to come.

LOVE NLC is more than a Convention theme, but a mantra of how our #NLCFamily connects with one another, about our collective energy towards creating fairer and more equitable systems, and about our deep love for our communities.
