Pan-Africanism Working Group Munich (Social Activists, 2013)
The Pan-Africanism Working Group Munich is a forum that promotes international understanding for social, cultural and intellectual interaction among people of African origin, the African Diaspora and Germans.
The working group’s interests include mutual & reciprocal integration, rapprochement and dialogue on an equal footing as well as inter-cultural exchange. The association campaigns against all forms of racism and discrimination and advocates for equal rights for all.
Profound communication between different population and cultural groups is facilitated through the regular events which are meant for interested people of all origins. An example is the Pan-Africanism congress which takes place biennially.
The central themes of Pan-Africanism, disseminated through enlightenment work, are self-esteem as well as self-help for people of African origin. The enlightenment work is meant amongst others to give people of African origin in Germany the opportunity to raise awareness of their social reality or problems, which are due to a convergence of different cultures, thereby strengthening their ability to integrate.
The association represents the interest of people of African origin through events, consultations and support on integration, racism and discrimination issues.
