The AAWRC provides services, develops programs and advocates for women and girls of the African Diaspora and their communities.   The vision was born in 1994 in the atmosphere of a  bookstore, Sisterspace and Books once located in Washington, DC. During weekly conversations, women began to realize the importance of discussing the many issues affecting African American woman and finding ways to meet the needs that they shared.  Over 21 years later, the AAWRC, a nonprofit organization, continues to promote the ideas and visions of the founders, and to include as a natural part of its vision, the empowerment of youth and their families.
