African immigrant and refugee leaders take charge

We engage and serve all African immigrant and refugee communities in Washington State. Our primary focus is on small African communities in King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties who are underrepresented and underserved in WA State.

 

What we have accomplished

The ALHB led many programs to educate the African immigrant and refugee community about COVID-19. In addition, we hosted a wide variety of virtual discussions that gave members of this community a safe space to ask questions and discuss hardships they were facing during this period. The sessions gave immigrants and refugees an opportunity to discuss these things amongst peers who share the same culture, speak the same language, and understand what they are going through.
