While we are an organization serving the interest of the Caribbean heritage community, you do not have to be of Caribbean descent to join us. We are an association of individuals from diverse backgrounds and interests, who share a love for and a deep fascination with the Caribbean culture and heritage. All we ask is that you share our Vision, Values and Objectives.

So, the question remains: why should I join the CCAWR? Well, aside from the tangible benefits of membership, we invite you to community – the sense of value and belonging, of being a part of something bigger than yourself, of caring and sharing and giving back.

As we work to fulfill our Mission and Objectives within the context of our Values and strive to realize our Vision, we invite you to Celebrate the Past, Shape the Present and Dream the Future with us.
