Sudu stands in solidarity with our African American, Caribbean and African communities in our fight against systemic racism, white supremacy and the historic oppression and marginalization of the black community. As a child advocacy organization, we will continue to encourage and engage our partners, donors and all citizens as we participate in driving positive change to ensure every individual is treated with respect and dignity in the United States, Sierra Leone and around the world.
The United States of America is an extremely diverse nation, one made up of indigenous peoples, descendants of enslaved Africans, and immigrants from across the globe. It is a nation of diverse perspectives and opinions, one that through struggle and resilience delivered the Civil Rights Movements. It is also a nation founded on land taken from its indigenous Native Americans; one with its early economic strength built on the backs of enslaved Africans with successive waves of immigrants who strive to experience the American ideal; a national ethos in which democracy, human rights, liberty, freedom and equality are supposed to be protected and the opportunity for prosperity and success can be achieved through hard work.
