Who We Are
The National Assembly of American Slavery Descendants (NAASD) is 501(c3) grassroots association of community activists from across the United States that came together around May 2019 though the pursuit of political education and a desire to understand the plight of our people.
NAASD is committed to educating and training American Freedmen, who are Black American Descendants of US Chattel Slavery, on civic engagement nationwide. By training advocates in the political process, proper non-profit formation, policy writing and an array of other skills, we ensure that members can self advocate at all levels of government.
Serve to empower the future generations of American Freedmen to preserve our unique lineage and culture for decades to come, while advancing principles that heal America and preserve democracy for all.
Political Education, Community Organizing, and Mobilizing support for Reparations for Black American Descendants of U.S. Chattel Slavery, as well as the demand that government at all levels provide, commit to, and deliver a targeted, effective and specific political and economic agenda to close the Black-White wealth gulf.
What We Believe
We believe the U.S government owes reparations to Black Americans who descend from U.S. Slavery, Jim Crow, and who suffer ongoing economic, social, and political exclusion. We believe the legacy of slavery lives within the Black-White wealth gulf. We believe that the gulf is widening and worsening and if not corrected by targeted policies from the Federal Government, the typical Black American U.S. Slavery Descendant will soon have ZERO wealth. We believe that we can eliminate the massive Black-White wealth gulf with reparations.
We have helped to organize advocates across the nation and are currently represented in all of the major cities across the U.S.
We are actively growing our membership base, as well as establishing coalitions with other grassroots organizations that are fighting for policy and redress for descendants of US chattel slavery and Black Americans in general.
