African Liberation Day, May 25, is Monday and we are ready to engage you all in our May 25 mobilization “Active Citizenship in the Fight Against COVID-19, #Rise4OurLives.”
May 25 is the largest annual Africans Rising mobilization, and this year we are engaging in a week-long (May 25 – 31) mobilization to support and amplify the conversations, actions, and events Africans are undertaking to keep our communities safe during this global health pandemic.
Below are the events and actions you can participate in for our week-long mobilization of African liberation! You can also visit our website to see a list of events in the Gambia, Mozambique, the United States and many other countries across the continent and Diaspora.
All week long you can join our #Rise4OurLives online mobilization by sharing your thoughts, photos, and videos in response to COVID-19. Tag us on Twitter: @AfricansRising, Facebook: Africans Rising, or Instagram: @Africans_Rising and use the hashtag #Rise4OurLives so that we can share your voices and stories with the world!
