African Communities Together
- New York
African Communities Together is an organization of African immigrants fighting for civil rights, opportunity, and a better life for our families here in the U.S. and back in Africa.
ACT empowers African immigrants to integrate socially, get ahead economically, and engage civically.
We connect African immigrants to critical services, help Africans develop as leaders, and organize our communities on the issues that matter.
Providing services. ACT helps African immigrants find free or low-cost assistance with immigration, jobs, and other needs. We provide free referrals to trustworthy nonprofit and government agency partners. Our staff and volunteers speak multiple languages and actively outreach to African communities that are often underserved. Get in touch with us to learn more about services. If you offer services to the African immigrant community please get in touch here.
Developing leaders. Through our Leadership Committees and trainings, ACT gives African immigrants the tools and information they need to become leaders on the issues that matter to them. Members engage with civic and political leaders, participate in political education, and plan ACT campaigns and actions.
Creating change. ACT mobilizes African immigrant communities to speak out on the issues that affect our lives and the lives of our families. We work on the local, state, national, and international level on issues including fair immigration reform, jobs in the African community, and language access.
