See Us, Hear Us, Count Us In

This special event will mark the midterm review of the implementation of the International Decade for People of African Descent (2014-2025), which advocates for justice, recognition and development to ensure people of African descent can exercise their full human rights.

Together, we can achieve recognition, justice and development for people of African Descent. Let’s take action to #FightRacism, celebrate #MandelaDay and honour the voices and culture of the people of African Descent.

The agenda includes musical performances, a mini-documentary produced in Latin America, conversations with experts and inspiring voices from young people of African Descent.
