Uniting Black organisations and committed individuals
We empower organisations and individuals of African and Afro-diasporic heritage; nurturing strength and resilience within communities through advocacy, direct support, commUnity art, and Afro-centric education. Moreover, we collaborate with Indigenous peoples, People of Colour, and white allies to amplify our impact.
tubman.network e.V. empowers organisations and individuals of African and Afro-diasporic descent. As a community-led organisation, we work to coordinate assistance and support for Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour, particularly those displaced by conflict, including individuals fleeing war-torn regions like Ukraine, Sudan, and Congo. Additionally, people of all ages affected by racism and other forms of discrimination receive ongoing support and advocacy from our network. They can also find a sense of commUnity through participation in our diverse artistic ventures.
What else do we do?
We assist with securing housing solutions, provide guidance on study options, offer internship and voluntary work opportunities, refer individuals for legal assistance and paid employment.
Additionally, we offer psycho-social support with highly qualified counsellors of African origin, facilitate educational workshops, keynote speeches, and presentations for schools, as well as statutory and voluntary sector organisations. We contribute to the development of a curriculum that embraces an Africa-centered perspective.
Our organisation collaborates with over 50 other organisations, dedicated to ongoing professionalisation and capacity expansion, with the goal of continually enhancing our ability to meet the diverse needs of our communities.
