Afrik Impact | Mission, Purpose
Mission: To celebrate the impact of the African Diaspora in Colorado and to honor our accomplishments.
Purpose: With a focus on social, educational and economic impact, the African Leadership Group hosts a major community event each year. The purpose of this event is to celebrate our collective accomplishments, recognize our community champions, and cast the vision for our next year of policy and advocacy work. In addition, Afrik Impact is part of our public persuasion campaign to have the State of Colorado issue a proclamation to officially establish August as African Immigrant Month. In all of this, we celebrate loud and proud, the positive impact of African people in Colorado and honor our contributions. This year’s theme is Empowering the Next Generation for Economic Impact—showcasing the role African immigrants play in the economy and highlighting the business opportunities that are available in the United States and internationally.
