Partners with AALF on Regional Transformative Change


Now on the verge of a regional and national movement, the African American Leadership Forum (AALF) aims to change the conditions for African Americans in the Twin Cities, Des Moines, Portland, Seattle and Tacoma. While the challenges that face individual communities often require individual solutions, the region faces similar challenges and opportunities in education, housing, and economic development, health and wellness, leadership and civic engagement, and criminal justice.  The Kirwan Institute worked with AALF site staff and volunteers to strategize both local and regional change. Supported by a grant from the Northwest Area Foundation.
