Friends of the African Union (FAU) recognizes that the African Union (AU), to date, is the only organization which has the structural and functional capacity to unite, and service the needs and aspirations of the more than 1.5 billion African people, globally.
FAU is organized around the action in 2005, when the AU defined the African Diaspora as “… peoples of African descent and heritage living outside the continent, irrespective of their citizenship, and who remain committed to contribute to the development of the continent and the building of the African Union.”
FAU supports the organization of peoples of African descent in the United States of America (USA) to join us in changing the lives of Africans worldwide by our collective action. In doing so we will call on their self-interest as the currently most wealthy group of Africans worldwide and as citizens of one of the 14 nations which in February 26, 1885 founded modern Africa through the General Act of the Conference of Berlin.
FAU believes that it is time, as members of the African family worldwide, to capitalize on our joint skills, contacts and intellectual property to create solution based on the goal of ending institutionalized governmental racism in the United States of America and implementing a super-set of the AU’s Africa 2063.
FAU Purpose is to support the people of the African Union creating a unified Africa which includes the youths, daughters, sons, mothers, fathers, babies, elders, and all our people worldwide.
FAU Unity is where members of the organization will be able to unite, not only with the people of the AU from all over the world that have similar goals, interest, skills, talents, and collective goals, but also with allies who support the people of the AU in meeting the challenging times before us.
FAU Self-Determination is where a member can take as an active part in our self-determination as an African people as they want – in person or electronically. We encourage members to take a leadership role in the activities of the FAU and make them fully inclusive of peoples with disabilities.
FAU Collective Work and Responsibility is centered around private public partnerships. A member will have the opportunity to take part in making a better present and future for our children, youth, seniors and people with disabilities by being involved with the collective works and responsibility that is going to make life better for African People.
FAU’s Cooperative Economics creates for each member a public private partnership that makes each member part of an economic plan that will aid in our people’s financial upliftment.
FAU as a Creative Class Coalition entourages members to use their creativity to come up with ideas that will be beneficial to our people, starting with themselves through joint ventures with FAU and standalone ventures.
FAU supports the United Nations (UN) Universal Declaration of Human Rights and its application to Africans and their condition worldwide.
FAU supports Peace, Security and basic human dignity within Africa and around the globe, with an emphasis on stopping slavery in the AU and the African Diaspora.
FAU supports political empowerment of Africans as individual citizens and in free associations on cooperation and solidarity in the continent and in the global African Diaspora.
FAU supports the creation of a new United Nations Sustainable Development Goal based plan between the United States of America and the African Union.
