About

A Bit of Background

In January 2020, a group of like-minded individuals gathered and brainstormed the idea of creating a community organization to connect residents of Afrocentric background and other cultures. Our Mission is to  inspire a healthier community by connecting people and creating opportunities for social and economic growth
