The leaflet says The Africa Fund pioneered the campaign for sanctions against apartheid, building a network of engaged local elected officials and concerned citizens in over 30 states and 100 cities, and sent election observers to the first democratic elections in South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. In the next three years, The Africa Fund will engage hundreds of city and state public officials and community leaders in a series of regional consultations; involve an expanding circle of African American and other religious leaders in ongoing interaction with African policy issues, highlighting human rights, democratization and economic justice issues; link women leaders in Africa and the U.S. in a common effort; and support organizations and individuals campaigning for human rights, democracy and the rule of law in Africa. The leaflet discusses aid, trade, investment, debt, and U.S. support for Nigerian democracy.
