Uhuru Furniture Keeps Moving Forward!

BREAKING: A simple finger device could save your life

"COVID-19 is disproportionately striking African and Spanish-speaking people around the country and in New York City, African people are twice as likely to die from the virus than white people, according to an ABC news report on April 17."

Uhuru Furniture is part of APEDF's mission to change this reality by creating African self-determination programs that bring collective solutions to health and health care for black community!

African Health in African Hands

The Uhuru Health Festival and One Africa!

Despite this, the need for health resources in the African community has not stopped!

"Black people have the highest rate of death from all cancers
as well as from unintentional injury compared to anyone else in Alameda County, CA according to the Alameda County Health Data Profile. These conditions are generally accepted as normal." - The Burning Spear newspaper

Uhuru Furniture, a project of APEDF is changing that, creating a new 'normal' by participating in building an independent African economy!

Be prepared - Do you know which hospital to go to if you have emergency symptoms of COVID-19?
Not all hospitals have ventilators!

APEDF President Ona Zené Yeshitela on defending and supporting Uhuru Furniture
"Our first priority is the safety of our people. This is why we shut down all of our institutions...we intend on coming out, of course, stronger than we were before this crisis hit. Our tagline, “The Baddest Non-Profit on the Planet,” is something that we fight for all the time and we’re asking people to join us in this fight.
I don’t know how many times this country has dealt with bailing out the banks, the airlines, Wall Street and all these major corporations. We are demanding that the government bail out and make African-owned small businesses their first priority in the communities around the world." - The Burning Spear newspaper

Black Ankh: Ask the Doctor Series
Our sister non-profit the All African People's Development and Empowerment Project hosted its first live Ask the Doctor Series featuring Dr. Loretta King, who has over 30 years of nursing experience and is a member of the Black Ankh Medical Advisory Team.
AAPDEP brings together African doctors to provide much needed health resources to the African community.

How to access resources from the U.S. government
African people are disproportionately affected by this pandemic, both in numbers of infected, numbers of deaths and as usual, in access to any of the shamefully inadequate resources being offered to the general population by the U.S. Govt. Here is a starting place for people to get something to survive on, while APEDF continues to build an independent African economy.
