At Africans In the Diaspora, we believe that women, youth, and Iocal communities are the source of innovative solutions for our shared African problems. In 2018, we are excited to share information about the three issue areas that direct our mission: food sovereignty, climate justice, and alternative economies. Today, we discuss alternative economies.
