Advocacy Network for Africa (ADNA) "is a progressive non-partisan network of more than 200 US-based organizations, which maintain some significant focus on Africa or U.S.-Africa relations in their work." [1]

"Under the name of the Southern Africa Working Group (SAWG), this network was founded to share information and mobilize action in solidarity with the anti-Apartheid and grassroots liberation movements of the Southern African countries still remaining under white minority rule.
