The month of November is significant because Garinagu from Belize, Guatemala, and Nicaragua celebrate their settlement day during this month. Only Honduras observes it on April 12. Also, November is the original Settlement month established by Thomas Vincent Ramos for all Garinagu. In recognition of Garifuna Heritage Month, Gahfu Garifuna will host the Garifuna Street Fest 2018 to celebrate all Garinagu. Mark your calendar and save the date Sunday, November 18, 2018. History will be made again!

Community Development:

The Civic Engagement Project aims to empower individuals to become more engaged in issues that affect their community.

As part of a non-partisan project, the Civic Engagement Project will help permanent residents become U.S. citizens by providing resources and offering ongoing immigration workshops. It will also serve to educate and empower community members to register to vote, and get them to voice issues and concerns that matter most to them. Through this project, we will conduct voter registration drives, host annual voting education and carry out the voting initiatives.

To learn more about upcoming events, please contact GAHFU (323) 898-6841
