AFAM is the reconstitution of a former support group for African American employees at El Camino College. The main purpose is to allow African American employees to network, be in comunity, and assist and support our students. We also work with campus officials in increasing African American faculty and employees. Given the political implications that surface after the George Floyd murders, AFAM established ourselves as leader on campus in dismantling institutional and structural racist practices.
