African Advocacy Network (AAN)
African Advocacy Network (AAN) is a San Francisco-based program founded in 2009 to serve the growing Diaspora of African and Afro-Caribbean immigrants. AAN provides immigration legal services, case management, and social integration services based on a unique Cultural Brokering model. AAN couples these programs with experienced and trained linguistic capacity in more than ten languages that span the African continent such as Amharic, Tigrinya, and Arabic to French, Wolof, Berber, Sonufu, and more.
AAN’s mission is to make the African Advocacy Network an outstanding social and immigration legal service provider for African and black immigrants through the delivery of quality services in a culturally and linguistically- supportive environment.
At the community level, AAN aims to tap into the strength and resilience of African and Afro-Caribbean immigrants and refugees in the Bay area and equip them with the tools they need to lead independent, productive, and dignified lives.
