Our Mission

 


TO BRING AUTHENTIC AFRICAN CULTURE TO THE FOREFRONT OF PUBLIC DIALOGUE


TO ALLEVIATE POVERTY THROUGH SUSTAINABLE COOPERATIVE ECONOMICS


ADC's mission is to empower and unite the Diaspora through a variety of educational and cultural initiatives. To that end, we have been offering direct services to members, successfully providing advocacy services in court, translation services, and health resource referrals for recent immigrants. ADC, Inc. also partnered with UNICEF to help bring awareness to the #StopEbola campaign in 2015.

Our five year plan consists of two main goals: 
i) the construction of the African Diaspora Cultural Center, and

ii) the launch of the African Diaspora Credit Union

The African Diaspora Cultural Center will be a brewing pot for the ideas, products, and connections that will shape the future of our continent. It will showcase authentic African culture, art, and cuisine, and will host celebrations, meetings, and events to honor our heritage and diversity. It will be a venue where our council will continue to serve the community, our members can have candid, free conversations, and our children can learn, play, and grow together.

The African Diaspora Credit Union will be a financial co-operative that promotes financial literacy, financial planning, entrepreneurship, community development, and group economics. For most people, a credit union that offers culture-sensitive, localized, individualized customer service is a privilege beyond access. We know that most people would switch to a credit union if they were made aware of the benefits credit unions provide over banks. Beyond that, the credit union will help the Council finance the economic development and revitalization of the Diaspora community.
