Okere said the founders of UPAC identified the need for a united, non-segmented organisation that supports, uplifts and empowers all

“UPAC aims to unite and serve not only a certain section of Africans in the Diaspora, but to regroup all the African communities living in the
US,” said Okere.
He said the organisation had specific goals it aimed to accomplish.
“One such goal is to aid Africans in reaching the US Congress and other major legislative bodies in the country.”
