Washington Office on Africa
The Washington Office on Africa (WOA), an Africa advocacy organization, whose educational affiliate is the Africa Policy Information Center (APIC).
"WOA was founded in 1972 by a coalition of religious denominations and trade unions. Our original mission was to support the movement for freedom from white-minority rule in southern Africa. Today, WOA promotes public policies in the United States that foster peace, justice, and economic development throughout the continent of Africa.
"APIC is a non-profit educational organization with the primary objectives of widening policy debate in the United States around issues affecting grassroots African interests throughout the continent. APIC facilitates linkages between the Washington policy arena and the American public and others concerned with U.S. policy towards Africa."
