Take Action

Public Policy Advocacy

GHPAC’s Policy Advocacy strategy focuses on issues impacting Ghanaians no matter where we live. We strive to improve the lives of Ghanaians through action. In the United States, we have influenced policies impacting immigration policy, job creation, small business support, affordable housing, access to education, and U.S-Africa relations. In Ghana, we focus on policies impacting Diasporans, sustainable development, trade, equitable economic transformation, health care, youth development and education.

Political Engagement

Ghana Diaspora Political Action Committee is the political arm of Ghana Diaspora Public Affairs Collective established to increase the number of Ghanaian Americans elected to political office, support candidates that champion the interests of the Ghanaian American community and promote Ghanaian American participation in the political process.

We are a hybrid PAC with the ability to financially give directly to candidates as well as contribute unlimited amounts towards electioneering efforts.

Community Building

The Forward Ever Collective Foundation is a charitable non-profit 501 (c)(3) affiliated with Ghana Diaspora Public Affairs Collective (“GHPAC”) established to address the acute challenges faced by the local and global Ghanaian community, and build community capacity. FECF provides grants to support select educational and outreach programs, including voter education, youth empowerment, research, educational seminars/trade missions, educational materials and conferences, and leadership programs.
