The Union of African Communities (UAC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the diverse African communities in Southwestern Pennsylvania by fostering unity, empowering current and future community leaders, and strengthening relationships with our neighbors outside of the African community. UAC is an umbrella organization, currently providing leadership and support to over 9,000 members from over 25 different African countries residing throughout the Southwestern Pennsylvania region.

In January 2016, we held the first of what has since become our annual African Diversity Awards (ADA). It is the first event of its kind in the region—award celebration of promoting our diversity in the region, as well as an opportunity to recognize and honor champions of diversity in our communities, city, and county at large. To date, this event has brought together over 1000 people and has become a central feature in our work to not only foster pride, unity and promote diversity within ourselves, but also within our larger community in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

As a leader in our community, and significant contributor to the thriving and vibrant community that it is, we would like to formally invite you to be a special guest of honor for next year diversity award to be held at Rodef Shalom, Grand Ballroom, 4905 Fifth Ave on August 3, 2019 from 6:00pm – 10:00 P.M.

This event is typically attended by community, faith based organizations, Academic institutions, city and county leaders, and other key stakeholders devoted to promoting diversity and inclusion in our vibrant region.
