The AU Diaspora Declaration: Ten Years After

PRESS RELEASE April 10th, 2022
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

SRDC, AUADSFWG, AFRIDU, 6RADAT, and RTRA, along with other African Descendants-African Diaspora Civil Society organizations, Pan Africanists, and African Activist Organizations have organized a special Roundtable on – The AU Diaspora Declaration: Ten Years After.

This is a call for all organized members of the African Descendants-African Diaspora who can make the trip, or who can otherwise represent your position, are invited to this
gathering on May 24-28, 2022, in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia.

The 25th of May 2022, The World Africa Day, will mark the tenth year since the Heads of State and  Government and Representatives of the African Union, the Caribbean, North, Latin & South America, and the African Diaspora met during the Global African Diaspora Summit in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa. That day, ten years ago, witnessed the historic adoption of the African Union-African Diaspora Declaration concerning the Diaspora Sixth Region of Africa.

Now, African Diaspora Civil Society organizations, Pan Africanists, and African Activist Organizations have taken the initiative to organize a special Roundtable on the AU Diaspora Declaration: Ten Years After. There will be serious and frank discussions to evaluate the success of that Diaspora Declaration, as we lay out a clear, decisive, actionable, accountable, and attainable path forward according to its intent.

Almost 20 years ago, the AU’s amended Constitutive Act declared that it shall “invite and encourage the full participation of the African Diaspora as an important part of our
continent, in the building of the African Union.” We received and have accepted that invitation, and have been, and continue to contribute to Africa’s growth and development in every way possible.

We are engaging Africa as investors, as CSOs, and – we are also returning to our ancestral homeland to assume our rightful places inside the African Union, in the villages – and all
spaces in between.

So, please make plans to join us, in person or online for this defining event in the history of the Descendants of those taken from the continent and displaced throughout the world.
