Caribbean Community In Philadelphia
The Full Story
Caribbean Community in Philadelphia (CCP) is a grassroots non-profit organization, fiscally managed by CultureTrust Greater Philadelphia. It was initially established in 2013 by founding president and strategic project director, Miranda Alexander, through our online social media platform. This organization is dedicated to building a well-represented image of the Caribbean Diaspora People and providing a safe space to interface and explore rich Caribbean Cultural Identity and Heritage. We help to reframe our multi-cultural and multi-linguistic identity narrative through an 8-part programming initiative focused on: Arts & Culture, Sports, Health, Education, Seniors, Immigration, Business, Climate Change & Natural Disaster Support. Our diverse, transformative, and collaborative community-based organization is driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of connected organizational grassroots support.
