AALF Overview




 Twin Cities African American Leadership Forum is united in the belief that we can do more together than apart. We recognize that in order to achieve enduring, positive change in our community, we need a truly transformative agenda.  It is our goal to create a healthy place for all to prosper and it is our hope that you join us in our movement.

Above all else, the AALF’s universal goal is “a just and healthy society that works equally well for everyone.” Second to that, we strive for a vital and healthy African American community that uplifts the rest. We realize that our top goals cannot be realized without establishing a number of critically important target goals that help move us – and society – toward true social change.
