African American Leadership Council Holds Meet and Greet

Sojourner’s Truth Staff

Several dozen community members joined the African American Leadership Council of United Way on Thursday, May 9 for a meet and greet at The Truth Art Gallery.

“This is our way of thanking and engaging people whom we don’t know,” said Joint Council Chairman Patrice McClellan, EdD, of the reason for the gathering.

The invited guests took the opportunity to speak with AALC members and volunteer to assist the AALC committees in their work in the community.

The AALC Leadership Development committee plans the Council’s Lunch with Leaders series that brings experienced African American leaders together to share their expertise on important topics. The Strategic Partnerships committee leads the Council’s investment in a minority scholarship program for local students in partnership with its Brothers on the Rise program. The committee also supports a partnership with Read for Literacy and initiates the Real Men READ-y program.

The Membership committee plans volunteer and engagement opportunities for members.

The AALC’s mission is to positively impact the African American community by advocating effective initiatives through strategic partnerships, leadership development and volunteerism. The Council was formed in 2006 as an affinity group for the United Way of Greater Toledo’s donors and has about 180 members plus another 80 on its mailing lists.
