The African Heritage Alliance (AHA) organisation has come about in response to the ever-present systemic racism that is experienced by those in the black community when engaging with institutions as well as going about their daily lives. The organisation aims to establish a platform where they can bring together voices from the black community to engage with key decision-makers. AHA intension is to influence and change policy, practices and procedures that may be negatively impacting those from the black community, be it overtly or due to unconscious bias.
