This event is part of African/African Ancestry Health and Heritage Month (AAAHHM) in
Santa Clara County. The overall goal of African/African Ancestry Health and Heritage month
is to provide African/African Ancestry families with appropriate resources to promote healthy habits in the African/African Ancestry community. This year's theme for the month of February is WAZIMA which is Swahili for ‘collective wellness.’
A variety of culturally focused events will provide an opportunity for families and children
from 0-17 years to obtain resources which are available to them in Santa Clara County through FIRST 5, the Santa Clara County Departments of Public Health and Behavioral Health, the Santa Clara County Executives Office as well as other organizations and nonprofits.
The inception of the AAAHHM in 2016 was a response to the Call to Action initiated by the African/African Ancestry Community, the Black Leadership Kitchen Cabinet and various stakeholders. The purpose of the Call to Action was to address long-standing racism that people of African/African Ancestry continue to experience within Santa Clara County.
