We operate to help eliminate racism, xenophobia, classism, and sexism in America.

According to the United Nations, “for centuries, people of African descent living in the African Diaspora, were marginalized as part of the legacy of slavery and colonialism. There is a growing consensus that racism and racial discrimination have caused them to be relegated in many aspects of public life, they have suffered exclusion and poverty and are often “invisible” in official statistics. There has been progress but the situation persists, to varying degrees, in many parts of the world.”

Again, according to the United Nations, “The factors that lead to poverty among people of African descent are mainly structural. Discrimination is apparent in the unequal access these groups have to basic services. People of African descent are often disadvantaged, for example, in access to education, health-care, markets, loans and technology.”


We Work Together To Make The World a Better Place.

Our mission is "To empower Americans of African descent to shape their own future and enhance their overall quality of life by creating and facilitating a dynamic framework for growth and development.”

Our vision is “That people of African descent have full inclusion in society without racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, and related intolerance with all of the resources required to pursue the American dream and contribute to the overall economic and workforce development of the U.S.”
