Fund drive

Help us hire a second lawyer for our San Francisco office.


The African Advocacy Network (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 serves over 400 clients per year with direct legal and social services and reaches over 1000 individuals per year through Know Your Rights education workshops in the Bay Area.

AAN couples these programs with experienced and trained linguistic capacity in more than ten languages that span the African continent such as Amharic, Arabic, Dioula, Effutu, French, Haitian Creole, Kru, Senya, Spanish, Tigrinya, Wolof, and more.

Started in 2009, AAN was first fiscally sponsored by Dolores Street Community Services (DSCS). Since January 3, 2018, the African Advocacy Network became an independent 501c3 non-profit and has been providing services on its new premises at 3106 Folsom St. in San Francisco.
