AFJN Welcomes Dr. Steven Nabieu Rogers as the New Executive Director

May 17th, 2022

Congratulations to Dr. Steven Nabieu Rogers, new Executive Director of Africa Faith & Justice Network (AFJN)! OMI USA JPIC has been a member of AFJN for 30 years.

Washington DC – The Africa Faith and Justice Network, a Catholic 501(c)3 organization, has named Dr. Steven Nabieu Rogers as its new Executive Director. With Catholic missionary congregations and numerous Africa-focused coalitions of all persuasions, AFJN works to advocate for just relations with Africa and in partnership with African people as they engage in the struggle for justice, peace, and the integrity of creation.

“I am pleased to announce that Dr. Steven Nabieu Rogers has accepted AFJN’s Executive Director position” said Sr. Florence Deacon, OSF, Chair of the Board of Directors. “Dr. Rogers comes highly recommended and has a breadth of knowledge and experiences that will serve him well in his new leadership role. I believe his grasp of the realities of what is happening in Africa and his vision will set AFJN up for a solid future.” 

Dr. Rogers earned his Doctorate of Philosophy in Urban Planning and Public Policy from the University of Texas at Arlington (Arlington, TX) and a Masters in Social and Public Policy from Duquesne University (Pittsburgh, PA). Prior to joining AFJN, he was a faculty member and Old Mutual Research Fellow at the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business (Cape Town, South Africa). Dr. Rogers has published articles on globalization, urbanization and housing in Africa and believes that Africa’s needs are best served by an African-led intellectualism emanating from the lived experiences of Africans.
