In education the Commission has concentrated its efforts on improving graduation rates for students of color, increased diversity of educators, cultural competency, reducing suspensions and expulsions of minorities, and loan debt facing college students. The AAAC promotes policies nurturing economic development, improved education, better health outcomes and affordable housing for all in the African-American community.

AAAC and LAPRAC forums open to the public. The discussion will include the topics of Racial Profiling Prevention, Mass Incarceration, Juvenile Detention, Suspension and Expulsion Rates of Minority Students, Implicit and Explicit Bias, and Felony Reentry/Societal Reintegration.
