Our mission

The afrolatin@ forum centers Blackness within Latinidad and focuses on Latin@s of African descent in the United States to provide a bridge that expands our understanding of the African Diaspora. We support the struggle for racial and social justice through dialogue and action by engaging communities, forging coalitions, creating accessible educational materials, and organizing public events. We have an anti-racist, anti-patriarchal, and anti-capitalist lens, and seek to affirm all aspects of AfroLatinidad. Our work is guided by a communal perspective that recognizes the centrality of race in today's global reality.

What we do

The afrolatin@ forum envisions a world where Black Latinidad is affirmed and the contributions of the African Diaspora are embraced as central within Latinidad and essential in the world. We work to ensure that AfroLatinxs improve their quality of life by repairing the impact of white supremacy.
