African Advocacy Network (AAN)
The AAN is a San Francisco-based nonprofit founded in 2009 to serve the growing Diaspora of African and Afro-Caribbean immigrants. AAN provides immigration legal services, case management, and social integration services based on a unique Cultural Brokering model.
AAN couples these programs with experienced and trained linguistic capacity in more than ten languages that span the African continent including Amharic, Arabic, Berber, Dioula, Effutu, French, Haitian Creole, Kru, Senya, Sonufu, Spanish, Tigrinya, Wolof, and more. They act in collaboration with community partners, individuals, faith-based groups, and advocates to amplify their impact to ensure the equity of all voices and sustain their mission.
