Base Building at African Communities Together and Bronx Community College

An effective means of base-building,  the Pan African CDI carried out the Community Survey Project at the African Communities Together (A.C.T) and the Bronx Community College (B.C.C). We were greeted skeptically at first but as we engaged more with folks, active community participation took course: we received over 130 pledges at B.C.C alone!

The purpose of Pan-African Federal Credit Union is more than just access, but control of economic resources, which better guarantees a more equal and just society. The credit union would facilitate the process of converting profit into investment in the community (in the form of lending), rather than having profit shipped out, not being productive capital for the community.
