Fillmore Jazz Ambassadors Mission & Vision

The Fillmore Jazz Ambassadors' (FJA) mission is to create a thriving bay area jazz environment that sustains, develops and honors jazz practitioners. FJA educates the community through discussion, programs, and music grounded in the famous “Harlem of the West,” jazz era and dedicated to the revitalization of San Francisco’s, Fillmore Jazz District. 

Our vision is to create a world where educating the community through Jazz music is acknowledged, respected, developed and seen as the outgrowth of Black struggle, pain, and enjoyment.


  1.  Educate, current and next generation musicians and music aficionados of the historical influence and impact of Classic, African American Music-Jazz
  2. Developing and promoting regional jazz music performers and venues
  3. Subsidizing and aiding community-based jazz musicians, composers, and performers in their struggle for recognition and economic parity
  4. Honor the role regional urban centers, such as Fillmore, have played in the growth, validation, and popularity of Jazz music

Our Jazz Ambassadors will chaperone you through the evolution & the rhythm of jazz --- what it meant to a once thriving community that survived the hardships of racial discrimination, urban renewal and Jim Crow segregation.
