The African American Coalition of Howard County (AACHC) was founded over 20 years ago focusing on economic, social and healthcare issues affecting minority communities with special emphasis on research and policy advancement. The AACHC is considered a leading advocate of affordable housing, with leadership team members having served on the General Growth Housing Planning Committee and the Howard Hughes Corporation redevelopment committee for downtown Columbia, MD. Additionally, we support the development of African American owned businesses for the region.

AACHC is the sister organization of African Americans in Howard County (AAIHC). AAIHC endorses political candidates for leadership positions and expand the public policy debate to include racial and economic equality. The views are progressive with an arc toward improving the system for democracy, freedom and opportunity for all.
