National Investment Council

The Collective PAC dismantles structural barriers to Black political participation and power through education, advocacy, fundraising, endorsements, and electioneering. We view the problem as multi-faceted and take a 360 approach to attaining political equality for Black Americans. The mission of The Collective PAC is achieving political equity for Black Americans, whereas Black elected representation becomes commensurate with the percentage of African Americans in cities, states, and the nation. To accomplish our mission, we need leaders who are ready and willing to take the work of The Collective to the next level. 

The Collective National Investment Council (NIC) is a leadership entity composed of individuals committed to financially serving The Collective PAC at the highest levels. NIC members agree to not only meet annual financial benchmarks but are dedicated to broadly spreading The Collective’s message and gaining new partnerships and opportunities for the organization.
