Have a look at the people that make up our Board of Directors and Advisory Board.

Our Function

We advocate before governmental bodies, including the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Federal Transportation Commission (FTC), Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and all of the federal financial regulators, such as Treasury, Federal Reserve, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Consumer Federal Protection Bureau (CFPB), Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and Security and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Our Advocacies

As we aggressively seek a brighter economic future for America’s historically underserved populations, our goal through advocacy work and policy changes, more corporate entities will be held to a greater standard of social responsibility in helping to reduce income and wealth inequality.
To accomplish our goal NDC meets with multi-­‐billion dollar companies seeking acquisitions, and propose substantial public interest provisions via an increase in corporate philanthropy. We positively advocate for the social responsibility, which benefits corporate strategic reinvestments in communities relative to assets, deposits, revenue, and pretax profits. Thus our partnership results in a collaboration of social responsibility and increased public interest in marginalized communities of color.

Our Accomplishments

A few of NDC’s key accomplishments with corporations in public interest provisions include, but not limited to:
• Diversity in corporate governance, executive leadership, and employment.
• Diversity and access to procurement.
• Establish and/or increase marketing, education, and outreach to minority communities.
• Increase in philanthropy and community reinvestment
• Provision of program or service to low income or minority communities.


NDC is seeking to enlist member organizations and individuals with a passion for servant leadership. We value members who understand the principles of competence and character resulting in a high-trust organizational culture.
