    So gald to learn about this network. Is there a chapter in Los Angeles and can you add locations to this website.
    I serve as Social Action Director for the AME Church and have a lifelong passion for connecting the African Diaspora in “real” ways”. As an international body, we can do this.
    On a personal note, my family now includes persons who are Afro-Honduran, Afro-Philippian, Afro-Nigerian, and I want to insure that they claim all of their roots.
    I learned of your group by reading the bio of Constance Malloy, one of your founders.
    Thanks!
