We Charge Colonialism (WCC) will provide the tools to bring decolonization out of abstraction into reality for Afrikan people globally. 

Mission Statement

We Charge Colonialism (WCC) is a grassroots think tank seeking domestic and international recognition that Afrikans globally are presently colonized, and therefore are owed the right to sovereignty, autonomy, and self-determination. 

It is the goal of WCC to accomplish a global awareness surrounding the plight of Afrikans and our status as colonized people. We will raise that awareness with the sheer intention of engaging our people to act on it. To achieve this goal, WCC will engage in multiple levels of advocacy in the fight against colonialism, including:

  • Decolonization training

  • Decolonization organizing work

  • Public awareness and educational content 

  • Community support

We therefore support and join with the efforts of Afrikan communities throughout the world to achieve the common goal of self-determination and freedom from neo-colonialism/colonialism/imperialism.
