Meet AFJN’s


Africa Europe Faith and Justice Network

The Africa Europe Faith & Justice Network (AEFJN) is a faith-based international network present in Africa and in Europe, established in 1988.

AEFJN promotes economic justice between the European Union and sub-Saharan Africa so that the poor of Africa may look forward to a better future.

The Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM) was born out of the will of young African Bishops during the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965). The establishment of SECAM is the result of the bishops resolution to build a continental structure in order to bring forth the African vision to the whole Church.

Advocacy Network for Africa (AdNA)

The Advocacy Network for Africa (AdNA) is a coalition of like minded individuals and organizations who:

1. work to raise the level of understanding and attention to current events in Africa and in international policy and funding with Members of Congress, with the President, with key Administration officials, and in international organizations like the United Nations and the World Bank.

2. Additionally, work nationally and internationally through the organizational members and contact networks to increase the flow of dependable and timely action-oriented information shared among the Africa advocacy community here in the US, and between US-based groups and African grassroots groups.

3. Finally, mobilize progressive US voters across the country to be politically active on key US/Africa and international policy issues.


The Coalition for Africa’s Liberation and Restoration (CALAR) is a collaborative initiative of numerous groups on the continent and in the diasporas.

Catholics Care Coalition

The Catholic Cares Coalition is promoting vaccine equity in the US and around the world, drawing on Catholic social teaching, for people who are underserved or marginalized. This includes communities of color, rural areas, and others with limited vaccine availability in the US, as well as access for developing countries and among refugees and other displaced people who may not be citizens in their current home.

Organizations joining the coalition will commit to three major goals:

  1. Leverage their communication channels and resources to share consistent information about the importance and moral responsibility of individuals to accept a COVID-19 vaccine when available.
  2. Provide human, spiritual, and pastoral support for those struggling to understand, affirm, and act on Catholic social teaching, including the teachings of Pope Francis and the US Catholic Bishops.
  3. Advocate for the equitable distribution of the vaccine in the U.S. and globally.

Catholic Task Force on Africa (CTFA)

The Catholic Task Force on Africa (CTFA) was founded almost a decade ago as a coalition of Catholic religious communities and organizations seeking to analyze and influence US policy toward Africa based on principles of Catholic Social Teaching. It represents a collaborative effort to win Africa higher policy priority among US government policymakers. It is composed of a broad variety of Catholic institutions, from Catholic mission-sending congregations with personnel serving in Africa to US-based advocacy groups, NGOs and the United States Catholic Conference of Catholic Bishops. CTFA meets monthly in Washington DC.

CTFA seeks to listen to African church and civil society partners and to channel their concerns to US policymakers. It has done this via:

  • Hosting African Catholic bishops and representatives of African non-governmental organizations, seeking their views and helping them communicate with appropriate US government offices and officials.
  • Political advocacy that urges more effective US policies towards Africa including writing letters to and meetings with Members of Congress and the Administration, and participation in campaigns where appropriate.
  • Public education on African issues, particularly within Catholic institutions and networks.
