ADPAC is a political lobbying and advocacy organisation that represents its membership, which is exclusively African diasporan to improve the socio economic interests of African diasporan people in a particular nation where that jurisdiction chapter is based. ADPAC work across Education, Education, Economics, Health, Justice, Politics, Housing, Trade & Industry and Media with national leadership directors coordinating each of those departments in conjunction with the regional chapters.
The aim of ADPAC is to decrease the effects of institutional Afriphobia (see definitions of Afriphobia in the Definitions of Afriphobia PDF) in any nation the African diaspora reside through institutional organisation and combining the effectiveness of established and emerging groups and organisations with the mandate to advocate and serve exclusively African diaspora interests.
Through organisation and operating on code we intent to reverse the practice of individual silos of respective expertise operating in isolation and connect the organisational dots through national connectivity using CRM software solutions managed by the national and regional directors and chairs. We intend to bring African diaspora coordinated operations all the way into the 21st century.
The coordinated advocacy and lobbying is one part of what will enable us to reverse the trend of waiting for other communities to solve problems and represent our interests on our behalf but the coded language and operating on code is what will solidify the unified voice of African disporan populations in whatever country we reside. That coded language will be used across mass media (print, radio, TV and online), by community leaders, politicians, influencers, business owners and educators.
We are united by the term African diasporans as defined by the African Diaspora Region of the African Union (the sixth region after the Northern, Southern, Central, Eastern and Western regions), which was created as a virtual region to specifically address the sizable diasporas interests within the African Union. ADPAC represents the national interests of the diaspora in specific territories and plugs those collective interests right into the African Diaspora Region council.
By members subscribing through micro payments we operate with the autonomy that we have never been able to realise depending on others for funding who's agendas have not been aligned with ours. Firstly nothing given can be sustained and secondly money given when we have no organisational bodies comes with strings that rarely benefit the African diaspora needs and this also enables others to acquire funding created in our name on our behalf.
