Washington State Coalition of African Community Leaders

Our Mission

Is to be the home for all African community organizations in Washington state. We are the place for collaboration and nurturing strong community voices. Our 26+ member organizations have a platform here for sharing information, resources, and ideas to better serve our communities.


1 - We strive to increase civic engagement through advocacy. 2- We are committed to fostering economic empowerment. 3 - We increase 2020 US Census awareness and drive voter registration. 5 - We maintain a healthy relationship with our funders.


Healthy communities are not possible without the engagement of successful committees to help advance leadership, training, education, promote advocacy, civil engagement and organizing. We offer support for managing community events and gatherings to further our commitment in developing a strong coalition.
