WE ORGANIZE AROUND THE ACTION In 2005, when the African Union defined the African Diaspora (AU) as “... peoples of African descent and heritage living outside the continent, irrespective of their citizenship, and who remain committed to contribute to the development of the continent and the building of the African Union.”
In 2012 The AU expanded its membership to those who do not live in its established 5 regions to a 6th region. 55 million people in the USA.
As a result of the broader definition of inclusion by the AU, the African Diaspora within the United States is larger in population size than the racial and ethnic definitions used by the U.S. Census Bureau. Based on the broader definition of the AU, the African Diaspora population residing within the United States exceeds a market of 55 million people. Forty million of these people come from ancestors who where slaves in the USA. This the focus of our efforts in 2015 along with high worth Africans worldwide.
The AU designated in 2013 African Diasporan organizations and individuals to review its 50 year plan.Friends of the African Union was asked by the African Union in August 2013 to the First African Union Consultation Meeting
with the Diaspora on the African Union Agenda 2063 - New York, United States of America Oct. 8th through the 10th 2013.
This then authorized us as an African American non governmental Ohio unincorporated association
to comment on the plan and we did so and at the same time told them of what we had as a plan for the USA a $1.25 Trillion Dollar Quantitative Easing
based solution to poverty for Americans. This plan had 7 periods and was to last till 2063. In that plan the Friends of the African Union (FAU) had taken upon itself to organize a Secretariat in North America for a new African Regional Economic Community
- one that would include the USA, Bermuda, Mexico and Canada.
The plan was to have it join by 2016 the already established and African Union recognized 8 Regional Economic Communities
already in existence.(On Track)
In 2014 the Friends of the African Union
joined with the New Future Foundation
on Sept. 15th 2014 to submit a solution to institutionalized federal racism in the United States of America as part of the United Nations Human Rights Commission Universal Periodic Review of the United States of America
. The Universal Periodic Review
(UPR) is a unique process which involves a review of the human rights records of all UN Member States. The UPR is a State-driven process, under the auspices of the Human Rights Council
, which provides the opportunity for each State to declare what actions they have taken to improve the human rights situations in their countries and to fulfill their human rights obligations. As one of the main features of the Council, the UPR is designed to ensure equal treatment for every country when their human rights situations are assessed.
Our submission was based on United Nations protocols
used by the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and based on the 10 areas of human rights focus as put forth by the US State Dept
(1) civil rights, ethnic, and racial discrimination;
(2) criminal justice issues;
(3) indigenous issues;
(4) national security;
(6) labor and trafficking;
(7) economic, social and cultural rights and measures;
(8) the environment;
(9) domestic implementation of human rights, and;
(10) treaties and international human rights mechanisms.
Quantitative easing (QE) is an unconventional monetary policy used by a central bank, in the case of FAU USA the US Federal Reserve System, to stimulate an economy when standard monetary policy has become ineffective. A central bank implements quantitative easing by buying specified amounts of financial assets from commercial banks and other private institutions, thus raising the prices of those financial assets and lowering their yield, while simultaneously increasing the monetary base.
The US Federal Reserve System
operations are overseen by the United States Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). No one needs to tell us about the agreement between this private company and the US Government because we have been meeting with them for over 5 years. If that is a turn off for you then this whole proposal is probably not for you. Here is the public law on the Federal Reserve Act
. Our program is based on funds for main street not just wall street.
The FOMC controls the supply of credit to banks and the sale of US Treasury securities. The Federal Open Market Committee meets every two months during the fiscal year. At scheduled meetings, the FOMC meets and makes any changes it sees as necessary, notably to the federal funds rate and the discount rate. Janet Yellen, the first woman chairman was appointed by President Obama in 2014, she is the current chairperson of the Federal Reserve and the FOMC.
(We meet in Washington DC between March 23 and March 30th 2015,Capital Hilton. We are a member of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition. Which is an association of more than 600 community-based organizations that promote access to basic banking services, including credit and savings, to create and sustain affordable housing, job development and vibrant communities for America’s working families. We created the FAU Chamber of Commerce to the same for the people of the African Union)
Our submission was accepted by the UN Sept. 15th 2014 and we expect in May 2015 we will present a 3 minute wrap-up of our proposal. It mentioned three areas of the USA (Cincinnati, Cleveland and St Louis) to be used as an example of what is wrong and what can be made right in the USA.
The Friends of the African Union submitted the facts of the Mike Brown case, known then, as an example, to the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights
and US State Dept. of possible police misconduct, in line with the deadline for such a submission in regards to The Universal Periodic Review
of the USA in 2015. It is our intention to give the Office of the High Commissioner the entire grand jury report
and a unified set of comments.
We would like any who have solutions that can be implemented under current American constitutional law to end institutionalized federal racism in the United States of America as part of the United Nations Human Rights Commission Universal Periodic Review request for POTUS action $5T.
President Obama (POTUS), by himself and with no congressional oversight, can tell his Treasury Secretary or the FOMC Chairman directly that he want to use additional QE authority, there was 16 trillion issued a of 2010. We guesstimate that $8.75 Trillion has been used. The Federal Open Market Committee will then direct the Open Market Trading Desk at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to conclude an $5 Trillion asset purchase program with us.
The proposed debt capitalization for distribution will be realized from November 18th 2016 through January 13th 2017 -

In this case Civil society is the “aggregate of non-governmental organizations and institutions that manifest interests and will of citizens” who want to Make America Live Up to the ideals in the preamble of the US Constitution – “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

- ($350B) Over a million African American businesses will have access to $100B in capital for a massive program of employment based on the FAU’s fork of the Presidents My Brothers Keepers program called the My Brother’s Keeper an African American Alliance where 100,000 of them will be strategic partners like the original 1,000 members of the FAU Chamber of Commerce (who would pay $1,000 membership fee to establish the partnership with us by December 24th 2015) and project ready programs as part of the African American Rebuild America and Make America Great 2030 Program with 59 public private partnerships like that of the in formation FAU Ohio Community Reinvestment Coalition in partnerships with state governments drawn from $250B of this section with $200B of this proposal is to meet the needs of the African American Community by focused investment in small-dollar business lending according to SBA standards through bank holding partnerships derived from community benefit agreements like those enacted in Ohio and SEC defined crowd-source funding.

- ($250B) We believe that as we invest over $130B into public private partnership like in the state of Ohio that fix the impact of the coal industry we will also fix the environmental problems left over from the industry collapse by employing the coal industry workers to fix it with $20B while applying bio-safe level IV developments and or alternative approved by the Army Core of Engineers and our national laboratories to those coal plants that are left and creating a global power systems that takes our transmission to the Americas, Asia and Africa as well as Europe. In addition we will address the federal government which manages leases for coal mining on 570 million acres of land, and a big portion of that is in Wyoming. About 40% of U.S. coal production comes from federal land. A Government Accountability Office report in 2014 found that the federal government was missing out on $1 billion annually because of undervalued coal leases for big coal companies with a trust for the next 100 years of $100B whose investment profits will go to remediate environmental and human damage and sell the power that our bio-safe level IV plants will produce.

Public Housing Authorities $500B; $500B in LMI Housing in cooperation with a proposed FAU NCRC and UMC task force; $500B to end homelessness for Veterans and Children in the USA; $500B in Urban Market Rate Housing that serves the national security by built to withstand a EMP with $700B used to train 7M Americans who are unemployed to develop and or build homes and invest up to 20% to help them build their own home.
