Merry Christmas and happy (early) New Year from all of us at the Africa Faith and Justice Network (AFJN)! As we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and say goodbye to 2022, we want to use this opportunity to reflect on the many blessings we received throughout the year and to thank you for your support over the years. Since 1983, AFJN continues to work for more just US-Africa policies that strive for peace, just governance, care for creation, and women empowerment by emphasizing the dignity of every human being especially our brothers and sisters in Africa who face injustice, oppression, and those who are living in poverty.
Through our programs on the continent, together we have impacted countless communities in Cameroon, Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Zambia, and Uganda and also the African diaspora living in the US. AFJN continues to hear from advocacy training participants ways that they have used the knowledge and skills from the training to fight injustice and preserve their land for their children’s children in Ghana and obtain vital records to remove their children from statelessness in Cameroon. AFJN also receives many partnership requests that we have to turn down due to limited resources.
AFJN is working toward more access to medicines and intellectual property waivers, transparent funding, and additional aid for African countries. Our recent participation in the faith-based Convocation on Hunger and Climate in Kenya emphasized the heavy burden facing Africa as the climate changes, though Africans produce the least amount of carbon emissions. In 2023, AFJN will continue to insist that the US Administration delivers on their promises made during the COP27 discussions and the US-Africa Leaders Summit.
2023 marks the 40th Anniversary of the founding of AFJN. Please stay tuned for more details and consider becoming a sponsor of this momentous occasion.
By the grace of God and with your support, AFJN will remain on the front lines of promoting and protecting justice and peace in Africa at a time when the work is even more important than ever.
May God bless you and protect you now and always.
