The United Liberty Alliance (ULA) is a civil rights movement focussed on the self-determination of the oppressed minorities in Southern Africa. These minorities include the descendants of:
The ULA is an umbrella body that unifies a multitude of minority-led organisations through the common goal of independence. The ULA itself does not have any members, instead relying on the membership of its affiliate organisations.
As of May 2018 the total membership of ULA affiliate organisations exceeds 350,000 persons, and this number is expected to grow to over 500,000 in the near future.

The various regions that have chosen independence will become states that form part of a new independent federation or confederation.

The conduct of all organisations in the alliance must therefore comply with the core values of ULA:
