The brochure says ACAS is guided by the following common principles in its approach to Africa and US policy: opposition to colonial and minority rule, support for efforts by African states to end their economic dependency, rejection of an East-West framework for analysis and action concerning Africa, recognition of the right of independent states to choose their own form of social and economic organization, and commitment to protection of human rights. The brochure discusses the American Committee on Africa, TransAfrica, the Washington Office on Africa, the Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association and College Retirement Equities Fund (TIAA-CREF), U.S. intervention in Angola, UNITA, lobbying campaigns for economic sanctions against South Africa, local divestment campaigns at campuses and city and state governments, scholarly cooperation with U.S. defense and intelligence agencies involving Africa, educational fora on the struggle in the Western Sahara, US compliance with United Nations and sanctions against Rhodesia. • WHAT ACAS STANDS FOR • ACAS GOALS • OUR PROGRAM • MEMBERSHIP FORM • ACAS EXECUTIVE BOARD
