The #JoinTheThinking2017 Conference, organized by the African Democratic Dreams Project, took place on April 22nd, 2017 at the Forest Hill Civic Center in Forest Hill, Texas. The speakers at the Conference were community leaders of the African Diaspora in Texas. African nations including Sierra Leone, Senegal, Democratic Republic of Congo and Nigeria were represented by distinguished speakers.
The speakers addressed the theme of ‘Tax Education, Security and Wealth Creation’ from perspectives that shed light on common challenges to development in African countries. They each went further to show how these challenges can be tackled through the passionate collective effort of Africans at home and in the Diaspora.
