About Us

The Black Clergy of Philadelphia and Vicinity was founded 40 years ago, and represents 11 denominations. Over the years, the organization has tackled a myriad of issues plaguing the African American community, from the two major pandemics facing us currently, covid and violence, reaching more youth and getting them connected to church and worship; HIV/AIDS; homelessness; affordable housing and gentrification; education reform; racial profiling; the criminal justice system and more.
