Who we are
CACC was established to respond to the needs of black grassroots community organizations. Focusing on being a collective voice and advocating for the inclusion of Black and African Canadians in Calgary and Area, education of the Calgary community has been a key part of the CACC’s purpose. Advocacy and collaboration to promote empowerment, education, inclusion, politics and capacity building is invested and centred around CACC’s mission.
With strong alliances, CACC focuses on creating awareness, education, opportunity and partnerships for its members in Calgary and Area. Through a collective approach, members can become strong and effective leaders, have their voices heard and be determined to create positive impacts for Black and African Canadians and their communities.
CACC will support shared leadership through avenues of information sharing, listening sessions, town halls, committee hearings, citizen participation on and for advisory boards for the collective good and well being of Black and African Communities.
