The AALC will lead efforts to bring together African American organizations and leaders to develop a common agenda, and to organize advocacy efforts directed at key stakeholders in the Greater Sacramento region to positively effect change in the condition of the African American community. The goal of the AALC is to:
- Improve policy responsiveness of local government;
- To secure equitable opportunity for prepared, reputable African American firms and individuals;
- To ensure that equitable resources are allocated to interests in the African American community that are prepared and properly position to successfully convert those resources into community benefits; and
- To improve the overall condition and self-perception of the community.
Bringing together organizations and leaders in the African American community to forge a common agenda and advocacy strategy - taking advantage of particularized strengths and the power of collaboration - will result in an improved ability to effectively lobby and advocate for the overall interests of the community. Committees were formed in November 2009 to begin designing strategic objectives in the following areas: advocacy, communications, economic development, education, healthcare, and housing. These effort will form the foundation for future actions of the AALC.
