Vision & Definitions
Our vision is to fight against and identify laws, policies, programs and projects that use data and information in an injustice and inequitable manner that would suppress minority communities.
We have partnered with local groups, neighborhoods, civic and community organizations to ensure that we share data and information with the aim of strengthening fragile families and communities.
AHCC envisions that every individual and neighborhood has an opportunity to succeed and thrive as a result of shared equity. Our vision is to serve underrepresented and the underserved black communities and be the voice for the voiceless.
AHCC has adopted the following Definitions:
