Priority Africa Network (PAN) is an Oakland-based non-profit that supports and advocates for Black immigrant communities in the Bay Area.   


Through providing consistent information and access to legal, health and social service resources;  networking and capacity building; and cultural meaning-making, PAN empowers and makes visible the needs and contributions of Black immigrants.  


PAN’s ‘bridge-building’ agenda makes  vital connections between Black immigrants and African Americans, and paves a path towards intentional integration, and identifying a common agenda towards the struggle for racial equity.  



Priority Africa Network builds intergenerational bridges within the African diaspora to advance Pan-Africanism ideals that enable an inclusive and equitable society for all people.” 


PAN's work is made possible by the contributions of our staff, Board, and volunteers. Their collective experience as activists, academics, and community leaders who are committed to the wholeness of the peoples of Africa and the African Diaspora advances the Network's mission.


Nunu Kidane, is the Executive Director leading the majority of the programmatic and administrative operations
