I. The Advocacy Initiative called FEEEDS  

FEEEDS Advocacy Initiative (full name):

What does FEEEDS® or the FEEEDS Advocacy Initiative mean? FEEEDS is an acronym that encompasses some of the main global issues of today-- Food Security, Education, Environment-Energy, Economics, Democracy-Development and Self-help -- that both developed and developing countries are grappling with in order to address and resolve the challenges for the world community and assist with poverty alleviation. The acronym represents the first letter of these word-phrases, and is a small Africa Intermediary Organization (AIO) working with underserved communities and groups using its voice to advocate for change and educate on the FEEEDS issues. 

All of the FEEEDS issues are also connected to human cultural communication and how we relate as people and as nations to each other. FEEEDS represents the first letter of each word or word-phrase noted above.

FEEEDS Advocacy Initiative provides lectures, contributions to Think Tank panels, provides training on FEEEDS issues and other global topics, and works with African Diaspora Groups and Small and Medium Size Enterprises, AGOA, and US-Africa Trade. Under the banner of the FEEEDS Initiative, its CEO, Dr. Robin Renee Sanders, is a sought-after speaker, serves as a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Scholar for the nationally-recognized Center for Independent Colleges and Universities, is a Trustee for Pittsburgh's Robert Morris University, on the board of a leading global human rights organization and a founding member of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) 2015 Society providing funding for the opening of NMAAHC.
