Letter from the President and CEO, Celeste Hodge Growden

Yes, we’ve reestablished the premier non-partisan organization that came into existence back in the 1970’s and had a three decade run. The purpose, then as it is now, of the Alaska Black Caucus (ABC) is to assert the Constitutional Rights of African Americans.
​We will achieve this by…

Community Partner

Actively involving the Caucus in the decision making processes in the community as a contributing partner with decision-makers and representative bodies affecting the lives and livelihoods of African Americans.

Advancement Supporter

Supporting and working in areas which help to advance the educational, cultural, political, and economic well-being of the African American community.

Neighborhood Connector

Acting as a liaison and coordinating entity for the various POC interests within the community and State.

Information Provider

Making available accurate and timely information on relevant issues and areas of concern to POCs and their progressive supporters

Equality Champion

Creating awareness that the struggle to achieve total equality has not yet been achieved.

Accountability Leader

Emphasizing the ever-increasing need for African Americans and POCs to make renewed attempts toward attaining these goals.
