Washington State Coalition of African Community Leaders
Our committees bring WSCACL objectives to life by proactively working to fulfill our goals. Each committee has its own leadership that includes one or more co-chairs to ensure work is aligned with our mission. https://wscacl.org/committees/
CULTURE & HERITAGE
We at WSCACL are committed to improving the lives of the African Diaspora by engaging and implementing the full meaning of Economic Empowerment, which we define as the process by which the economic well-being and quality of life of our communities, families, businesses, non-profits, and individuals are improved according to targeted goals and objectives. As a Coalition of Community Leaders, our unity allows the sharing of some of our scarce resources, human and technology, to collaborate for our shared goals of racial and economic justice. During these most unprecedented multiple threats to our African descent communities, the time is NOW more than ever to build a culturally appropriate healthy village full of affordable housing, healthcare facilities, schools, and active civic engagement that address our multi-generational needs. Join us as we put talk into measurable actions!
In line with the coalition's Civic Engagement strategic goal, VR will address the issues that affect civic participation by our communities. We will increase voter registration with the help from our community volunteers and any partners who align with our mission and are interested in a mutually beneficial relationship.
Youth, Family Support, & Education (YFSE)
Works from the framework of the Coalition’s strategic goal of economic empowerment. There is a direct link between educational achievement and building generational wealth. The more educated the community, the healthier and wealthier the community. YFSE seeks to improve the whole health and wellness of our African descent community members, while supporting the achievement of more educational, internship, and training opportunities.
