AfricaFiles is a network of people committed to Africa through its promotion of human rights, economic justice, African perspectives and alternative analyses.
The group was launched early in 2002 by former volunteers in two well-established groups based in Toronto but supported by numerous other people - in Canada, Africa, and elsewhere. These groups were: the Economic Rights in Southern Africa group of the Inter-Church Coalition on Africa (ICCAF), which is now a part of KAIROS-Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives, and the Toronto Committee for the Liberation of Southern Africa (TCLSAC) which, for more than 20 years, published the Southern Africa Report (SAR). For a variety of reasons, both of these groups ceased operation in 2001. Volunteer members from each group then came together to explore ways to continue their work and express their solidarity with Africa. The result is AfricaFiles.
