Having established a very strong infrastructure and relationships ADPAC are now ready to recruit trustees and directors
The African Diaspora Public Affairs Committee (ADPAC) has created solid foundations and established international relationships, including the councils of State of the African Diaspora (SOAD) and the Eco-6 Region, which both represent our socio economic interests at the African Union as the 6th region.
We recognise that we as Africans are the global majority and have been accepting the applied term of ethnic minority by those governing our various Diaspora territories to subjugate and oppress us. A strong Africa represents a strong African Diaspora and that is where ADPAC and our members dual interests lie.
We work across Economics, Education, Employment, Health, Housing, Justice, Politics, Trade & Industry and Media. Our role is to work with delivery partners by both creating and supporting initiatives that exclusively benefit and advance African/Caribbean socio economic mobility across those areas.
The net result we seek is to incorporate the required institutions for our population that we currently rely on those other than our community for. The first of those institutions that we are incorporating is the British African Diaspora Office for Statistics to quantify the circumference of the socio economic contribution that we make to the United Kingdom.
How do we collectively circumvent the affects of institutional racism?
The British African Diaspora Office for Statistics is the first institution formed by ADPAC
We are a democratic organisation established on a firm bed of African principles that uphold, promote and preserve our culture and ability to be self determined. Our governance demonstrates a clear process to hold trustees, directors and members accountable for our actions and observes the principles of Kwanza in dealing with conflict resolution.
Recognising that we are a global majority, our constitution, manifesto and governance connect us directly to the representative Diaspora bodies that convey and facilitate our interests at the African Union, which represents both social and economic opportunities for us as the Diaspora to become the premier delivery partner to the African continent for trade.
