Solidarity with africa in the struggle against Ebola

In the urgent effort to halt the transantlatic spread of the ebola virus, we urge a show friendship and solidarity with the peoples of Africaby supporting one or more organizations working in West Africa as front line responders to the Ebola epidemic, while also ccontinuing to seek opportunities to strengthen personal and professional connections to Africa and its people. 

2013

Black Bodies and 21st century cativities

We call on international organisations and sovereign nation states to focus their collective will and resources toward eradicating practices and policies that are contributing to the continued dehumanization and modern day enslavement of African peoples in many parts of the world. Greater efforts must be made to end the bondage caused by human trafficking, child labor and child soldering, sexploitation of women and children, and mass incarceration.

2012

A call for strtegic action to strengthen democracy, religious liberty, and peace in the sahel / saharan region of africa

We express here deep concern about the rapidly deteriorating human rights situation in several African countries overtaken by a globally expanding conflict of religious and ideological worldviews. Much better international and interreligious cooperaion is needed to reverse trends that would make countries such as Mali Nigeria, Kenya, Somalia, Uganda, and Sudan/South Sudan into proxies in an exaggerated collision between an historically Christian West and the Muslim Arab world.
