African American Organizations to Know

Aug 27, 2020

One of Project E3’s goals is to develop collaborative service strategies between State VR programs and community support service agencies. We want to reduce the economic impact that disability has on disadvantaged populations, including African American communities. According to Dedrick Muhammed, Director of the Racial Wealth Divide Initiative, the economic impact of disability is greater for blacks than it is for their white counterparts.

Partnering with community service agencies is vital to serving individuals with disabilities in low-income communities. Many state and national organizations work to reduce poverty and increase inclusion in African American communities. Diversity Best Practices has compiled a useful list of key organizations serving the African American Community.
