A Word from the Executive Director
Strategic Goals For 2020-2022
The Foundation of the Coalition are our committees, which are led by our African Descent Community Leaders. It is our Community Leaders that work directly with our community members in their nonprofit community organizations or businesses and are at the frontlines
CULTURE & HERITAGE
Focus on African descent Arts and Cultural programs, engage and teach youth about African descent culture, and participate in social events to bring awareness to Washingtonians
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!
