ONE ACTION, ONE VOICE & ONE PEOPLE!
Africans Rising for Justice, Peace, and Dignity is launching a new campaign called ‘The People's Campaign’, that puts a spotlight on community challenges and triumphs throughout the African continent and all around the world.
The People's Campaign aims to bring together communities across the continent and in the diaspora through actions by mobilizing the masses to speak on the issues that jeopardize the well-being of every citizen on the African continent and deprive them of their right to live a prosperous life.
The People's Campaign intends to push for a unified front of actions on the continent with ‘ONE ACTION, ONE VOICE & ONE PEOPLE’. We the people, civil society, organisations, movements, community leaders, scholars, intellectuals, artists, and activists have an obligation to shed light on the most important issues that stand against our freedoms and our right to pursue a life of sustainable peace, social justice and human dignity on the African continent and among Africans in the Diaspora.
We encourage organisations to get involved with The People’s Campaign and stand for the pursuit of human dignity through, teach-ins and forums, rallies, fundraisers, concerts and undertake online and offline activities to elevate the profile of the issues that matter the most to us. Our first action in The People’s Campaign will be to host regional convenings in Ghana and the DRC to discuss African youth in global development and we invite you to participate locally or online on Nov. 30. For more information about our upcoming events visit our website and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
As a part of The People’s Campaign, Africans Rising wants to hear directly from our members and remain accountable in our work and our vision for the African continent, therefore we will be selecting mobilizers to implement activities for our grassroots organising in 2020. These selected leaders will work alongside our regional coordinators and participate in our mentorship program, where they can learn from some of the sharpest minds in organizing across the continent. We encourage you to nominate a mobilizer from your organization. In the following weeks, Africans Rising will announce the selected mobilizers who will join our mentorship initiative.
Africans Rising has a footprint in over 40 different countries on the African continent, Over 350 organisations across the continent in our network, and continues to build partnerships with various entities and institutions that stand for peace, justice, humanity, and dignity. With The People’s Campaign, we invite you to be a part of our large and growing network that offers our members a variety of opportunities to learn and develop through mentorship, leadership skills, media access, professional training, and an international platform. Join us today!
“The current moment in history calls on us to intensify our efforts towards greater democracy, greater equality and the eradication of the multiple injustices our people face across the continent ” (Africans Rising).
