The National Association of Jamaican and Supportive Organizations, Inc. (NAJASO) is a non-profit, tax-exempt umbrella Association of Jamaicans and supporters throughout the United States and internationally. NAJASO was founded July 4, 1977, when representatives of Jamaican groups from across the United States of America met in Washington, DC and launched the national body to address immediate problems which primarily affected their communities in the United States.
NAJASO embraces many non-Jamaicans in organizations and individually, who support the Association’s programs; and also works closely with American and Caribbean organizations on issues affecting Jamaica, in particular, and the Caribbean in general. NAJASO does not support any political party in Jamaica, but carries out its program of assistance to Jamaica without any partisan political consideration.
