The Los Angeles Caribbean Connection is mainly for all Caribbean and West Indian people living in Southern California. If you live within 150 miles radius from Los Angeles you are more than welcome to join the group. However, we don't turn down anyone who show a special interest in our cultures based on his/her residence or race. The mission of this group is to bring together people from the islands for social, community, and business events. There's something unique about us from the Caribbean. We stay faithful to our culture and our people. We have a strong tribe mentality that differ us from the rest. We tend to grow spiritually when we do things along with people we can trust and connect with. My goal is to plan a meeting every month so we can socialize, keep in touch and tighten our bond with fellow yardies. Together we can help each other improve our lifestyle and stay positive as a family. We may speak a different language or a different patois but we all nurture a creole soul. That's why they call us "yardies" "neg/fanm lakay".
