For generations, activists in the United States engaged in struggles for social justice have recognized that a global perspective is essential for analyzing the forces of injustice and devising strategies to overcome them. In almost every case, the social justice issues that demand our attention here are also international in scope.
The US-Africa Network has come together in the belief that there is an urgent need to reinvigorate solidarity work between the US and Africa. Our initial goals are to help activists both old and new to rethink, regroup, and claim a space for activism linking progressive movements in Africa and the US.
