“Africa-wide solidarity and unity of purpose of the Peoples of Africa to build the Future we want – a right to peace, social inclusion and shared prosperity.”

Priority Africa Network, Afro Urban Society & Africans Rising are inviting you to come together as as part of the global ‘Africans Rising’ endeavor, a Pan-African movement of people and organisations, working for peace, justice and dignity.

As a growing movement, with a broad Pan-African remit, Africans Rising is currently focusing on:

  • Improving the ability of people and organisations to hold their governments accountable to more open governance and; ending the political impunity that drives corruption
  • Ensuring that people’s inherent rights to express and engage in the public discourse access and enjoy their freedoms is upheld

As a light touch, catalysing movement, ‘Africans Rising’ supports, amplifies & co-creates actions & events throughout the year, with African Liberation Day [Africa Day] on 25 May being the annual apex organising moment.
