Program of Action

As adapted from the African Union Declaration of the global African Diaspora Summit Document, the AU6RUSA will engage with AU-CIDO on issues relating to the effective participation of the African Diaspora in the Continent’s socio-economic development, including:

  • The deployment of diaspora stakeholders to support, advocate, and mobilize resources for developing the People of African Descent in the USA and the African Continent.
  • Development of partnerships between the African and Diaspora private sectors that build on their respective comparative advantages in order to translate into economic gains for Africa.
  • The promotion and support of institutions in America of the African Diaspora dedicated to innovation, invention, science and technology for the social and economic development of AU6RUSA Network and Africa
  • The design and development of knowledge exchange and brain circulation platforms for Diaspora experts, scholars, and educators to address and support the developmental agenda of the AU6RUSA and Africa


The promotion and the establishment of a comprehensive and all-inclusive database that will match the expertise of African Diaspora to African developmental needs

The Operational Guide for The Commissions

The core activities of the AU6RUSA Foundation are operationally guided by the African Union Agenda 2063 Flagship Project, United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030), Legacy Project, 400 Year Commemoration, Ghana right of abode, #1millionby2021, the Africa Union Program Implementation Strategy, President Trump H.R.1224 Bill (https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/115/hr1242/text)

Our activities are centered around and directed towards realizing those projects among others in transforming our local communities and continental Motherland into the Africa that We Want.


Global Activities

African Union Agenda 2063 is Africa’s blueprint and master plan for transforming Africa into the global powerhouse of the future, an entire concept that is synonymous with ‘The Africa We Want.’ It is the Continent’s strategic framework. It aims to deliver on its goal for inclusive and sustainable development, being a concrete manifestation of the pan-African drive for unity, self-determination, freedom, progress, and collective prosperity pursued under Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance.

 Agenda 2063 encapsulates not only Africa’s ‘Aspirations for the Future’ but also identifies key Flagship Programs that can boost Africa’s economic growth and development and lead to the rapid transformation of the Continent. Agenda 2063 also identifies key activities to be undertaken in its 10-year Implementation Plans, which will ensure that Agenda 2063 delivers both quantitative and qualitative transformational outcomes for Africa’s people. The Flagship projects encompass, amongst others, infrastructure, education, science, technology, arts, and culture and initiatives to secure peace on the Continent.

Within the context of ‘leaving no one behind,’ AU6RUSA is also guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030) for the sustainable growth and development of our communities in Africa and America so that we can genuinely bridge the gaps of disadvantage on the Continent, and in the Diaspora.

The Declaration of the First Global African Diaspora Summit on May 25, 2012, in South Africa adopted five Legacy Projects that give practical meaning to the Diaspora program:

  •  The production of a Skills Database of African Professionals in the Diaspora.
  • The establishment of the African Diaspora Volunteers Corps.
  • The African Diaspora Investment Fund.
  • A program on the Development Marketplace for the Diaspora, as a framework for facilitating innovation and entrepreneurship among Africans and Africans in the Diaspora
  • The African Remittances Institute.

These African Union Legacy Projects highlight the vital role that should be played by the African Diaspora. Because of this, our activities are centered around and directed towards the realization of these projects, among other objectives.

The “1 Million By 2021 Initiative” was officially launched by the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (AUC), H.E. Moussa Faki Mahamat, on April 24, 2019, at AUC Headquarters in Ethiopia. To support the One Million By 2021 initiative, AU6RUSA has adopted the One Million By 2021 as its flagship project. It is designed to Connect, Reconnect, Reverse the brain drain from Africa, and rebuild economic empowerment for sustainable development in our local communities and Africa. This initiative will incorporate Youth Development in America and on the Continent, through Entrepreneur, Education, Engagement, Employment (4Es) for training and employment: “Africa unite for youth: Bridging the gap and reaching out to African youth.”

The H.R.1242 Bill: 400 Years of African American History Commission Act:

AU6RUSA Action Plan for the 400 years Commemoration of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. 

Beyond 400 initiative commemorates the 400th Anniversary of the Transatlantic Slave Trade in 2019. It aims to connect the Africans descended from the victims and survivors of the Transatlantic Slave Trade with their brethren across America, across the Globe, and on the African Continent for a Global Africa Family.

 In line with the H.R.1242 Bill: 400 Years of African American History Commission Act, the  African Unity Sixth Region USA  shall:

Plan, develop, and carry out programs and tour activities throughout the United States to recognize and highlight the resilience and contributions of African Americans since 1619; an to acknowledge the impact that slavery and laws that enforced racial discrimination had on the United States, and to educate the public about; The arrival of Africans in the United States; and the contributions of African Americans to the United States.

AU6RUSA believes in and is committed to encouraging establishing a dual citizenship program to pave the way for social and economic mobilization on the African Continent and in the Diaspora. In that laudable regard, Ghana has invited African descendants in the Diaspora to return home. From the days of its first president, Kwame Nkrumah, the country has had a long history of encouraging the return of persons of African descent to help with the Continent’s development. In 2000, the government passed a law on the ‘Right of Abode,’ which allows a person of African descent to apply and be granted the right to stay in Ghana indefinitely. To make this a success, the country set up a Diaspora Affairs Bureau under the foreign affairs ministry to provide a sustainable link between the Ghanaian Diaspora and various government agencies to achieve development and investment goals.

 We commend African leaders like H. E. Mr. Nana Akufo Addo, The President of the Republic of Ghana, for being a trailblazer at reaching out to the African Diaspora. We celebrate H.E. for his dedication to reviving the movement to unite Africans on the Continent with their diaspora brethren and his good insight into the economic impact that a returning African Diaspora can
