One benefit of having a business is that I have the opportunity to put my expertise toward working with causes I am passionate about. One of my favorite causes is the focus of AFRE or All for Reparations and Emancipation, a nongovernmental organization.
AFRE is committed to gaining full recognition and restoration of Afrodescendant (slave descendants) human rights. AFRE has been able to kick-start efforts inside the United Nations by gaining early recognition of the human rights of Afrodescendant peoples.
I have had the honor of working on communications and marketing projects for partners of AFRE, who are also dedicated to the cause of Afrodescendant human rights in various ways.
Being an Afrodescendant human rights supporter has allowed me to understand that 250 million Afrodescendant peoples worldwide are undergoing a process of ethno-genesis (re-birth).
I am excited to be able to participate in this. This has helped me to learn better what it means to be an Afrodescendant and entrepreneur.
I’ll share more about AFRE and its partners in future posts, and how this group has played a huge part in my success.
