The African American Policy Forum (AAPF) is a not-for-profit organization that was founded in 1996, as a media-monitoring think tank and information clearing house focused on issues of gender and diversity. It seeks to build bridges between scholarly research and public discourse in order to address inequality and discrimination.
The AAPF was co-founded by Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, a law professor at Columbia University and the University of California at Los Angeles, and Luke Harris, Chair of the Political Science Department at Vassar College. Crenshaw is the AAPF's Executive Director; the Chairman of its Board of Directors is George Lipsitz.
The AAPF's projects include an Affirmative Action Research and Policy Consortium and a Multiracial Literacy and Leadership Initiative. In 2007, it organized a ten-day international workshop, "Globalizing Affirmative Action", which was attended by twenty-five scholars and advocates representing five countries.
