Our Write & Unite 2016 celebrates the International Decade for People of African Descent


Around 200 million people, living in the Americas, identify themselves as being of African descent. Many millions more live in other parts of the world, outside of the African continent. The promotion and protection of human rights of people of African descent has been a primary concern for the United Nations. For this reason, the General Assembly of the United Nations, declared that the Decade for People of African Descent (resolution 68/237) be observed from 2015 to 2024. This decade provides a solid framework for the United Nations, member states, civil society and all other relevant factors to join together with people of African descent and take effective measures for the implementation of the programme of activities in the spirit of recognition, justice and development.

The theme of Write & Unite 2016, was conceived with the Decade for People of African Descent in mind. We invite legal residents of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (including the Caribbean areas) to submit a story that shows, in a fun, playful or inspiring way that everyone; black, white, yellow, ginger or brown is equal and has the same intrinsic human value.
