Welcome New Members!
Notes From Our Past Meeting
Our members had a wonderful time at Bagel Lovers in RIverhead N.Y.! We welcomed some new members and went over our mission and history of the AAECF organization. Founded in 1996, the AAECF was formed by our founders (Marilyn Banks Winter, Cynthia Richardson, Patricia Harris, Thelma Booker, Maryeta Booker, Rev. Justin Winter, Rev. Frances Ligon, Mary Cooper, Carol Bell Dumpson, Jerry Damatob, Mergim Bazdhari, and with the help of Dr. 'Love' Banks who joined in the end of 1996. Our first meeting was at the the House of Praise in Jamesport and was incorporated in 2002. Now, 21 years later, we are still building and supporting the BIPOC community in underserved communities throughout Long Island, and planting the see for our communities to learn and grow!
