AN ORGANIZATION YOU CAN TRUST

Mission Statement

ACER is the leading issue-based community organization working to uplift and amplify theĀ African Diaspora to build power for systemic change that advances racial and economic equity in communities.

Vision

A transformed system, free from inequities where African Diaspora communities can thrive and lead prosperous lives.

HISTORY

Since the organization was established in 2008, staff have looked to community members to bring concerns, ideas, and issues to the table. We started by offering job and resources fairs that connected African immigrants to employment and other critical resources.

OUR COMMUNITY

According to census data, at least 77,000 African immigrants live in Minnesota. ACER works in the northwest suburban cities of Brooklyn Park, Brooklyn Center, Maple Grove, Crystal, Robbinsdale, and New Hope where a large population of African immigrants lives.
