African Advocacy Network (AAN) is a San Francisco-based nonprofit founded in 2009 to serve the growing Diaspora of African and Afro-Caribbean immigrants. AAN provides immigration legal services, case management, and social integration services based on a unique Cultural Brokering model. AAN couples these programs with experienced and trained linguistic capacity in more than ten languages that span the African continent such as Amharic, Tigrinya, and Arabic to French, Wolof, Berber, Sonufu, and more. Since 2009, AAN has been fiscally sponsored by Dolores Street Community Services (DSCS). After 7 years of building capacity and internal infrastructure, in mid-2016 AAN embarked in the process of becoming an independent organization. The transition will be completed by late 2017.
