The African Diaspora Forum (ADF) is a registered Johannesburg-based non-profit organisation. Established in 2008 in response to the xenophobic attacks in South Africa, the ADF facilitates relationships between all Africans living in South Africa and promotes a Pan African forum for African residents of all nationalities. The ADF is engaged at a local level with community policing forums and street committees. The Forum challenges xenophobic statements and policies.
