Celebrating women and girls of the African Diaspora since 1994
In everything we do, we believe in challenging social and economic injustice in our community. We do this through programs, projects and initiatives. The passion grew out of meetings/workshops/seminars/one-on-one sessions where the needs of Black women and their communities would and could be expressed and actions taken, personally and collectively to make progress in empowering ourselves to take actions towards the injustices that plague our community.
The African American Women's Resource Center is an educational and cultural service center. Our mission is to develop, support and maintain policies, programs, projects and activities that inform, educate, empower and celebrate women and girls of the African Diaspora and their communities.
