The African Diaspora Alliance
 

Mission

Our mission is to holistically connect descendants of Africa to the global African community, known as the African Diaspora. The African Diaspora Alliance serves as a facilitator through a variety of diverse programs.

Through our organization we seek to educate, encourage unity, and promote solidarity throughout the African Diaspora. Across all borders, through the services offered by ADA the diaspora is demystified and the mutual "exoticization" of the foreign ‘other’ is replaced with understanding and connectedness.
