Coalition of African American Leaders
Who are we?
COAL is an assembly of concerned African American social organizations who have come together for the purpose of addressing issues that impact on the well- being of the African American community.
COAL is composed of social organizations that have been in existence for decades. These groups proposed a vigorous response to depressing conditions facing many African Americans and were encouraged by growing sentiment that successful men should do something about the problems.
These groups represent a large portion of African American individuals who are at the highest level of awareness of quality of life issues.
