Bridge the Gap Coalition, Inc. is a 501(c )(3) nonprofit organization, based in Orlando, FL, producing workshops, events and programs that give platform to community partners whose services/products are essential to the empowerment of the African Diaspora in the United States. Moreover, our goal is to change biased narratives that perpetuate the marginalization of the African Diaspora through developing unbiased media, using and developing technology that improves community outreach, and steering research in a direction that takes into consideration the unique interests of the African Diaspora in perspective of their unique history.
As an organization, we reach back to ancestral wisdom (Sankofa) and merge it with modern innovation for balanced solutions to the plight of disenfranchised communities. These solutions are manifested through the guiding principle of Ubuntu: I am because we are. As such, we unite our strengths as a collective body of professionals, organizations and volunteers to empower communities to become self-determined, self-sustainable, and self-actualized.
To provide innovative solutions and social interventions that eliminate cultural, generational and socioeconomic gaps within the African Diaspora.
To enhance the quality of life of underserved communities.
A self-actualized community.
