Mailing soliciting membership in the TransAfrica D.C. Support Chapter. The DC Chapter has been working with the Shell Boycott/Free South Africa movement, educational presentations at church and community organizations, foreign relation policy forums to examine U.S. relations with Africa and the Caribbean, solidarity work with progressive third world organizations, and fundraising for the National TransAfrica. Last year, TransAfrica, in conjunction with other progressive organizations, helped engineer through the Congress and over the President's veto economic sanctions against the apartheid regime in South Africa and lobbied for a number of important issues concerning Africa and the Caribbean. Congress’ calendar is filled with bills about these regions, and conservatives are mounting a serious offensive to counteract past victories. TransAfrica needs to be a strong advocate both nationally and internationally, and the Washington DC Chapter needs to continue its outreach work in our local community. The mailing includes a response for VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES with a list of committees and activities of the DC Chapter.
