The Alliance was formed in November 2005 with a call to community residents from former City Councilman, Foster Hicks to attend a meeting at Union Baptist Church. His goal: To gauge how members of the African-American comunity would vote in the upcoming election. Three African-Americans would be running for office.
The first meeting gave birth to a need for African-Americans to come forth with an agenda that would create viable solutions to critical issues affecting the Black Community and the Vallejo Community at large. The name African American Alliance was born. This name reflected the group’s overall image and direction and after approval by the full body, individuals decided to carry out the agenda as determined.
Develop a proactive vehicle to address issues in education, economic development, health care and the political arena that affect the African American Community.
African American Alliance (AAA) embraces the African American community as family and continues to assist with gaining full and representative access to the Vallejo and Solano County economic and social/political institutions.
We welcome all who wish to join. Our efforts are tireless as we think globally and locally.
