Who We Are
The Nigerian-American Public Affairs Committee, or NAPACUSA, began in 2011. Our advocacy group in Los Angeles, California was founded by a group of visionary and high-profile Nigerian-American leaders in the USA who are committed to “enhanced socio-economic impact and voice of people of Nigerian origin in the United States and their increasingly influential next generation.”
Our advocacy organization is comprised of:
- NAPAC USA A 501 (C) 4 established in 2011 as a Political Action Committee (PAC)
- NAPAC Foundation A 501 (C) 3 established in 2014 as a Resource Trusteeship for NAPAC’s activities

To engage, inform, and empower Nigerian-Americans in the United States through policy impact, education, health and wellness, effective advocacy, and economic empowerment.
To be the center-point for Nigerian-American progress in the United States. All 50 states of the USA will be represented.
