This project aims to build a vibrant critical mass of a ‘strong pipeline’ of diverse leaders, role models and agents for the change we need.
Africans are at the bottom of Society; in the context of equalities Africans occupy the bottom rung in each and every pile of rubble hence the need to unapologetically tackle Afro-phobia head on.

Discrimination and inequalities faced by people of African descent can take many different forms: dislike, personal antipathy, bias, bigotry, prejudice, oppression, racism, structural and institutional discrimination, racial and ethnic profiling, enslavement, xenophobia, societal marginalisation and exclusion, systematic violence, hate speech and hate crime.’ http://www.enar-eu.org/Launch-of-ENAR-s-2014-15-Shadow-Report-on-Afrophobia-in-the-European-Union
BUOYED by massive evidence and support at grassroots level for a case for Afrophobia in the UK, Tapepuka is building solid and strategic partnerships with trusted allies in a bid to stop this pandemic from completely eroding gains that were accruing towards a relatively peaceful and tolerant diverse UK society prior to 2010 parliamentary elections.
Since then Afro-phobic immigration laws and policies have been reformulated and enacted with a disproportionate affect on how black Africans experience life in the areas of work, health, education, leisure, housing and policing.
This continues to escalate post Brexit, hence Africa One Voice is the rallying space for highlighting , raising awareness and challenging afro-phobia.
