AFRICAN COMMUNITY HOUSING & DEVELOPMENT
About the Learning Circle African Community Housing & Development (ACHD) and The Equity Network (T.E.N Consultants LLC) are inviting community members to participate in our Economic Development Now (E.D. Now!) learning circle. The learning circle will take participants through a learning journey rooted in racial equity in the economic development of King County’s Black communities. King County’s Black communities, including Black, refugees, and descendants of enslaved African people, are centered in this learning circle topics because of the unique history, displacement, and economic disenfranchisement of Black communities in this region. We will work together to deepen our knowledge of economic development, home ownership, and financial literacy in King County’s Black communities and put ideas and strategies into practice.
The learning circle curriculum will include with a maximum 12 participants:
- Developing shared knowledge to close opportunity gaps for economic development in Black communities
- Exploring individual and collective power

- Connecting organizations to build collective impact in King County.

Communities of Opportunity
This program is supported by the Communities of Opportunity Learning Community. Communities of Opportunity is an initiative that was catalyzed in 2014 by King County and the Seattle Foundation uniting with each other and with communities to address inequity; promote leadership; influence changes to institutions, systems, and policies; and seat the base of power within communities.
