African American Clergy and Elected Officials Coalition (AACEO)

Founded in 1989, with its mission for Clergy and Elected Officials to serve, strengthen and empower the parishioners and constituents of Brooklyn, through advocacy and participation in areas that we determine that social and economic injustice exists.

 

Today, the African American Clergy and Elected Officials Organization is the only organization in the state of New York where pastors, priests, ministers, elected officials and community stakeholders meet monthly to exchange information on community issues on all levels of government.
