PAC About Us

Mission

To empower and unite Pan-African visionaries across the spectrum of civil, political, and socioeconomic sectors into a singular nexus that informs the public discourse on global African challenges and mobilizes resources to confront these challenges through proactive and forward-thinking initiatives.

Vision

We fundamentally believe that unifying the vast and complex diversity of Africans both on the continent and in Diaspora in the spirit of a common destiny will be the single greatest contribution to humanity and the planet’s survival in the 21st century. By advocating for a transformative socioeconomic agenda grounded in sustainability and respect for the natural environment, PAC foresees establishing a new global development paradigm derived from African values that generates resilience, resource abundance, and prosperity for all.

Who We Are

Members of the Council are leading Pan-Africanists from across the world that leverage their collective influence, resources and experiences to elevate Africa’s significance on the world stage and address important issues affecting the lives of Africans and people of African descent across the globe.

Furthermore, the Council serves as a substantive bridge for the historic African Diaspora seeking to work together with their continental brothers and sisters to dispel the stories that have kept African peoples apart.

To achieve this, PAC necessarily operates at local, national, regional and wider international scales in order to carry out its mission and provide a centralized platform for networking, exchanging ideas, advocacy, conferencing, mobilizing actions, and volunteering.
