The city of Sterling Heights created the African American Coalition to serve as a forum that helps connect City leadership with the 10,000+ Black residents that call Sterling Heights home. The group provides an opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities centered on racial equity within Sterling Heights and beyond.
The group is comprised of African American residents; community leaders representing government, education, health care, business, clergy and more; and representatives from groups like Macomb Ministerial Alliance, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Macomb County Interfaith Center for Racial Justice and others.
Make Sterling Heights the community of choice for African Americans in Macomb County.
Work to recognize racial disparities, accomplish racial equity and promote a culture of diversity and inclusion. Ensure equal opportunities economically, politically, educationally, and socially for all African American citizens of Sterling Heights.
The African American Coalition meets on the last Wednesday of each month from 6-7:30 p.m.
