Nonprofit New York’s Annual Conference is designed to inspire our nonprofit community while creating meaningful opportunities for connecting, sharing, and learning together.

Join us in person for a full day of candid conversations and interactive sessions with leaders and experts who share innovative approaches, best practices, and invaluable insights on the emerging trends impacting our sector. Sessions are curated around our Key Areas of Excellence.

The 2023 Annual Conference’s theme is Authentic Alignment. As nonprofits, we create meaningful impact that results in real progress and change for the communities we serve, especially during times of uncertainty. This year, get inspired by the stories and strategies that highlight the value of seeking authentic alignment in the work we do and the ways we do the work.

Keynote Speaker

Maurice Mitchell

Maurice Mitchell is a nationally recognized social movement strategist. Born and raised in New York to Caribbean working-class parents, Maurice began organizing as a teenager—and never stopped. As a high school student, he served as a leader for the Long Island Student Coalition for Peace and Justice. At Howard University, after a classmate was killed by police officers, Maurice led organizing efforts against police brutality and for divestment from private prisons. He went on to work as an organizer for the Long Island Progressive Coalition, downstate organizing director for Citizen Action of NY, and Director of the NY State Civic Engagement Table.

Two tragedies changed the course of Maurice’s life. In 2012, Hurricane Sandy destroyed his home in Long Beach, NY and left him living in hotels for months. Eighteen months later, after Mike Brown was killed by police in Missouri, Maurice relocated to Ferguson to support organizers on the ground. Seeing the need for an anchor organization to provide strategic support and guidance to Movement for Black Lives activists across the country, he co-founded and managed Blackbird. Maurice was a key organizer of the Movement for Black Lives convention in Cleveland in 2015.

In 2018, Maurice took the helm of the Working Families Party as National Director where he is applying his passion and experience to make WFP the political home for a multi-racial working-class movement.
