Kilimanjaro Declaration 2022 condemns Slavery and Discrimination Based on Work and Descent (DWD)

January 24th, 2023

Our Communications and Social Movements Officer, Abdarahmane Wone, under the chairmanship of TrustAfrica’s Executive Director, Dr. Ebrima Sall, moderated an information session on Slavery and Discrimination Based on Work and Descent on August 30, 2022 in Arusha.

This information session was part of the General Assembly of the Africans Rising. Following this brilliant session, the Assembly, in its Kilimanjaro Declaration, strongly condemned Slavery and Discrimination Based on Work and Descent (DWD). TrustAfrica’s objective was, through this regional meeting, to better draw public attention to Discrimination Based on Work and Descent (DWD) and its harmful effects on Africa and Africans. It will be recalled that, in 2019, TrustAfrica had contributed to the establishment of a vast Network that fights against Slavery and Discrimination Based on Work and Descent.
