The APEDF mission is to defend the human and civil rights of the African community and end the disparities faced by African people in health, healthcare, education and economic development
African People's Education
& Defense Fund
Since 1994, we have been establishing institutions and programs that put African people in control of our own community life.
APEDF has longstanding institutions deeply rooted in the communities of Oakland, CA, St Louis, MO, St Petersburg, FL and Philadelphia, PA.
This is economic development in the hands of the African community to feed, clothe, house and employ our people.
We have the power to transform the future for African people, providing genuine solutions to disparities and injustice in every aspect of life for African people.
We are driven by African self-determination, a sense of pride and a vision for a prosperous future once again.
