Curated for the community

About the African Diaspora of Las Vegas

STRONGER TOGETHER

About Us

The African Diaspora of Las Vegas was founded in 2019, out of a need to connect with our African brothers and sisters, as well as a desire to support and help the communities we live in. 

 

As an organization representing more than 20 countries of African descent residing in Las Vegas, we are intentional and committed to serving, supporting, and providing the necessary resources to help improve the standard of living for the local diaspora, who contribute to the fabric of our greater Las Vegas community.

 

We provide workshops, mentorship, scholarships, and work with our community partners/leaders to provide healthcare options, family and educational resources, employment assistance, immigration support, and much more.

 

We have grown to become a family that works together, plays together, and serves together.
