AFA Celebrates Black History Month
AFA is proud to celebrate Black History Month. Last year, the AFA Executive Board passed a resolution recognizing Black History Month and committing to celebration and education.
Local Councils are distributing a Black History Month AFA pin. Diversity and Inclusion pins were a concept put forward by AFA members through AFA structure. We know have a PRIDE pin and a Black History Month pin. We expect to hear from additional members who want to celebrate our diverse history, and we will take similar action when we do.
Pick up your pin from your Local and look for AFA’s focus on Black History throughout the month of February.
