Soul City Institute to Launch NotYetUhuru and 2019 Election Advocacy Campaign

The Soul City Institute for Social Justice will be launching Not Yet Uhuru (NYU) – our digital platform for activists and a new voice for the womxn’s liberation movement in South Africa at 10:00 on Tuesday November 13, 2018. This event will be held at the iconic Constitutional Hill. This launch will trigger our 2019 General Elections advocacy campaign. We are holding this event in conjunction with our partners, TheTotalShutdown, Corruption Watch and Country Duty.

Invited participants in this interactive and innovative session include prominent political party leaders, diplomats and other important figures in this critical debate. The panel will debate their parties and organisations offerings on creating a feminist government. First time women voters in the audience will have an opportunity to question the panel members.

Our over-riding objective Is to ensure that all citizens, key decision makers, and the media are better Informed on issues pertaining to youth and adolescent health, especially gender based violence.

As South Africa’s first unapologetic feminist content hub, NYU will create a platform for engagement with -- and between -- womxn to challenge patriarchy and to build a feminist consciousness across the African continent using podcasts, video, creative writing and photography.

This platform is particularly necessary as South Africa has one of the highest rates of femicide and domestic abuse in the world.

We envisage that NYU will become a definitive voice for the womxn’s liberation movement in SA. Using multimedia platforms as a powerful advocacy tool, we will generate content -- and encourage a Big Conversation -- to shift social norms towards real gender equality and contribute to the building of SA's feminist movement. We plan to do this by disrupting mainstream media and amplifying the voices that have been silenced in the politics of our generation.

The launch will take place as follows

  • Date: 13th of November 2018
  • Time: 10h00
  • Venue: Constitutional Hill, Johannesburg
    GPS: -26.190217, 28.041916

Members of the media are invited to attend to cover this critical debate.
Please RSVP by close of business today, 09 November, 2018.
