Support African Communities Together! Please donate to empower African immigrants striving for the American Dream.
For over 10 years, I’ve been dreaming and planning an organization to empower my community: African immigrants in America. And now it’s finally happening! But I can’t do it alone. That’s why I’m asking you to join me in launching African Communities Together. Please make a contribution today.
Like many African immigrants, I left my country to escape political violence—the Ethiopian revolution that killed my father and separated my family. My family came to America in search of safety and a better life. Thanks to their sacrifices, I got an excellent education, and have sought to give back by working as an organizer with low-wage workers and low-income communities.
I founded African Communities Together to help African immigrants do what generations of immigrants to America have done before us: integrate socially, get ahead economically, and have our voice heard politically. ACT provides direct legal services, develops African immigrants as community leaders, and advocates on the issues that matter to our members.
ACT is off to a great start building our first chapter in New York City! The response from African immigrants and other organizations in the field has been tremendous. It’s clear that the need is urgent. Within 10 years, ACT has the potential to be a major civil rights organization for African immigrants, with a network of chapters in cities across the country.
But we can’t get there alone. Many of you have been involved with start-up organizations and businesses. So you know how important early donors and “angel investors” are.
This is a once-in-a lifetime occasion to co-create something special. If you believe in this dream, believe there’s a need, and believe in what we can accomplish together, then please—join me in launching African Communities Together today.
