WELCOME TO AFRICAN DIASPORA CONGRESS
The African Diaspora Congress (ADC) is a coalition of the various groups and concerned citizens from the African Diaspora and the Sixth Region committed to addressing critical issues affecting Africa and peoples of African descent on a global scale. The Congress brings together great businessmen and women, bankers, doctors, teachers, lawyers, activists of African descent living all over the world, and especially in the Diaspora. ADC reawakens the conscience of all peoples of African descent on the need for the protection of democracy, the rule of law, human rights in Africa as well as investments and knowledge transfer to the African continent.
The ADC promotes peaceful, progressive, and inclusive solutions to issues and challenges facing Africa and the African Diaspora; in order to complement the efforts being made in the continent by the African Union (AU) and other regional non-government organizations towards the advancement of African peoples and their societies for sustainable development, growth, and wealth creation. We stand for justice to effect change and build effective, accountable, inclusive institutions at all levels (UN SDG#16). We, as part of the global human family, stand for justice, equity and gender-neutral decency for all people. We are committed to confronting challenges, developmental interference, untrustworthy governance, and undue external meddling in African affairs.
A recent major action by the ADC was our global protest over the unceremonious and evidently wrongful dismissal of the AU Permanent Representative to the United States, H.E. Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao without due process by the AU Chairperson. The Congress viewed this as an act of injustice, and therefore, launched a major petition worldwide which called for her reinstatement. The ADC’s stand, born out of principle, is that all forms of injustice, insensitivity and repression should not be allowed to fester in Africa and/or against peoples of African descent. African leaders who continue to make self-serving decisions for their own personal preservation and gain to the detriment of their people will be challenged by ADC throughout Africa and globally. The progressive development of Africa for the benefit our people at home and around the world is one of the core missions of the African Diaspora Congress (ADC).
