The Afrikan Black Coalition (ABC) is a youth-based collective of 16 Black Student Unions across the University of California and California State University systems. Additionally, the work of ABC is maintained by a team of more than 25 volunteer staff members. With a mission to bring about the liberation of all Afrikan people, ABC is organizing the intellectual and economic resources of the Black Community to cultivate Black consciousness, build community leadership, and work to transform the quality of Black lives, both on and off campus.
