AMAAD is committed to highlighting and celebrating healthy living and affirming LGBTQ men and women of color.
AMAAD will be having its last backyard cookout to commemorate National Recovery Month. Join us on at 3pm, on September 16th, 2018. There will be food, music and guest speakers. See you there!
"What AMAAD is seeking to do is near and dear to the organizers, because this is where we spend our daily lives. This is where we do our sleeping, our shopping, our socializing. We are not going "into" South LA, we are already here."
Develop community-based peer driven recovery support networks for LGBTQ people of color in South Los Angeles.
