The African Union Regions: East Africa, West Africa, Central Africa, South Africa, North Africa ♦ The African Union considers the African Diaspora as its sixth member.
The African Union defines the African Diaspora as “Consisting of people of African origin living outside the continent, irrespective of their citizenship and nationality and who are willing to contribute to the development of the continent and the building of the African Union.
The African Union invites and encourages the African Diaspora to participate in the building and development of the African continent. Here, the main goal is to build the global African family in the service to the development of the continent and the building of the African Union.
The Diaspora United For Development is setup to partner with all African Diaspora Organizations. They empower people, lead impactful initiatives, promote unity and philanthropy to create awareness, and address socio-political issues within the Diaspora.
ADUD strives for unity and solidarity in the African diaspora; they address social and educational needs in Africa and worldwide. Events include trained volunteers who educate and connect people to resources and encourage collaboration to address health, youth, families, welfare and community development issues.
The African Diaspora Development Institute was born out of the desire to bring Africa to the world and the world to Africa. There currently is no one resource to easily find information about Africa. ADDI aims to become that resource.
We have come to the realization that the current status of the African economy is due to the mass exodus of the African Diaspora out of Africa. This exodus began with the loss of Africa’s children through slavery 400 years ago, followed by the recent Migrants who left Africa in search of greener pastures or running away from famine and wars. The children of Africa have ended up in North America, Europe, and Asia. African Heads of State are calling on all people of African Descent (African Diaspora) to come back home and build the Africa we want.
Due to slavery and colonization, Africa and her children on the Continent and abroad are a wounded people and we need healing. ADDI was formed to heal these wounds by reconnecting all people of African Descent with our roots in Africa, The Motherland.
We plan to open ADDI offices in all African countries in order to give the African governments easy access to the African Diaspora. Through our extensive database, our hope is that the African governments will gift the African diaspora businesses in collaboration with the businesses on the continent, first right of refusal of all developmental contracts in Africa, national and continental projects.
Before the pandemic, significant progress had been made in alleviating poverty in many countries within Eastern and Southeastern Asia, but up to 42 per cent of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa continued to live below the poverty line.
Poverty entails more than the lack of income and productive resources to ensure sustainable livelihoods. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion, as well as the lack of participation in decision-making. In 2015, more than 736 million people lived below the international poverty line. Around 10 per cent of the world population (pre-pandemic) was living in extreme poverty and struggling to fulfil the most basic needs like health, education, and access to water and sanitation, to name a few. There were 122 women aged 25 to 34 living in poverty for every 100 men of the same age group, and more than 160 million children were at risk of continuing to live in extreme poverty by 2030.
Since its establishment in 1971, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) has been committed to using the full Constitutional power, statutory authority, and financial resources of the federal government to ensure that African Americans and other marginalized communities in the United States have the opportunity to achieve the American Dream.
For the 117th Congress, the CBC has a historic 56 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, representing more than 82 million Americans, 25.3 percent of the total U.S. population, and more than 17 million African-Americans, 41 percent of the total U.S. African-American population. In addition, the CBC represents almost a fourth of the House Democratic Caucus.

The Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) formed in December of 2014, was created as a space for Black organizations across the country to debate and discuss the current political conditions, develop shared assessments of what political interventions were necessary in order to achieve key policy, cultural and political wins.
To convene organizational leadership in order to debate and co-create a shared movement wide strategy. Under the fundamental idea that we can achieve more together than we can separately.
We believe that prisons, police and all other institutions that inflict violence on Black people must be abolished and replaced by institutions that value and affirm the flourishing of Black lives.
We believe in transformation and a radical realignment of power:
The current systems we live inside of needs to be radically transformed, which includes a realignment of global power. We are creating a proactive, movement-based vision instead of a reactionary one.
