appy new year, thank you for your support in 2019. As we head into the new decade we’re excited to announce some changes to our business. We’ve recently registered with the charity commission to become a fully-fledged think tank and research institute. Our goal is to become the leading Pan African think tank of the Diaspora, with a new mission to produce evidence-based research that engages leaders and policymakers on the critical issues of African and African Caribbean people.
We’ll shortly be moving to a fee-paying membership community, a community of intellects who come together and are passionate about the hard grind of human rights, social justice, and ending racial discrimination. Fees will go into producing policy briefs as well as educational debates, lectures, and talks for our members.
In the next few weeks, you will see us roll out changes to our website and release an events schedule that’s primarily focused around our annual research agenda. We believe this is a more sustainable way to advocate for the change in our communities we all want to see. We are confident that with your support, as a unified block, we can fulfill our mission together.
We look forward to having you as part of our new journey.
Nigel Stewart, Founder & Director
