Our mission as the European Network of People of African Descent (ENPAD) is to work together as Black activists and organizations to advocate for the political advancement of People of African Descent in Europe.
We do not introduce new topics for political engagement, instead focusing on using our strength as a network to amplify and support existing activities and organizations from within Black communities in Europe.
Our aims are to promote:
- Advocacy and political action by and for People of African Descent to raise civic awareness of anti-Black racism in all forms in education, housing, health. employment and access to justice in Europe
- Awareness on intersectionality, thus building a political movement which challenges the interlocking systems of racial, sexual, heterosexual and class oppression
- The full implementation in Europe of the objectives of the UN International Decade for People of African Descent 2015-2024 and its three themes; recognition, justice and development
- Support, empowerment and enabling Black people to organise in self defined spaces throughout Europe
