Coalition of African Communities (AFRICOM)
The Coalition of African and Caribbean Communities (AFRICOM) was organized and incorporated in Pennsylvania in May 2001. At the time of its creation, AFRICOM comprised members from 15 different African and Caribbean nationalities. The birth of the Coalition was a milestone achievement in the experience of African and Caribbean immigrants and refugees in Philadelphia. Since 2001, AFRICOM has grown into a leading advocacy, civic engagement, and collective power building organization.
