Accord­ing to the 2010 Unit­ed States Cen­sus, there are an esti­mat­ed 17,000 Amer­i­cans of Cameroon­ian descent in the US. In addi­tion, Cameroo­ni­ans in Amer­i­ca have formed many groups that cater to the needs of their com­mu­ni­ties, includ­ing immi­gra­tion and asy­lum issues, edu­ca­tion­al devel­op­ment, pol­i­tics, reli­gion, busi­ness, and development.

Where pos­si­ble we tried to find the web­sites for some of these groups and make them avail­able. In cas­es where we could not find a cred­i­ble web­site, we left that option black.
