Thank you for your interest in the African American Mutual Assistance Network-(AAMAN). AAMAN was founded on May 15, 2003 by Mr. Cecil Adams, Jr. and Co-founded by Mrs. Valjean J. Adams and received it's Certificate of Incorporation on April 5, 2006 and received its 501 (c) 3 tax exempt status in June 2006.

In 2005 AAMAN laid the foundation for the first combined La Crosse, WI and Winona, MN Martian Luther King Junior Celebrations and the area's first White Privilege Workshops. AAMAN was one of the first stakeholders to assist with the establishment of The Greater La Crosse Area Diversity Council.

AAMAN's Mission is to create an environment of cultural acceptance by eliminating "mere" cultural tolerances.

To share cultural differences through open-honest dialogue by addressing racism and intolerance. Reduce poverty and build sustainable prosperity for low-income families. Provide educational resources to children and young adults in order to realize the possibility of a successful and productive life. Develop employment and educational opportunities for low-income families while inspiring children to learn, adults to teach and communities to move forward together.

We believe the quality of the investment we make in our youth and their families will help to positively shape their future. All of these individuals represent the promise of accomplishing great things and deserve every opportunity to fulfill that promise without restrictions.....AAMAN!
