Launch of 'We Will Speak Out' South Africa

On Monday 25th November, a South African chapter of the 'We Will Speak Out' coalition will be launched by Anglican Archbishop Thabo.

The launch will see faith communities, civil society organisations and survivors of sexual violence come together to speak out against sexual violence and unite to end sexual violence in South Africa. 

For more information, see our new South Africa country page on our website.

Breaking the silence

"Our faith teaches and gives us the foundation, to build a violence-free South Africa where men, women, boys and girls work together to bring peace for all. We speak out with one voice putting aside our differences and division." Most Revd Thabo Makgoba, Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town and Metropolitan of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa.

A new report is launched today looking at the role of the South African church in preventing and responding to sexual violence. Read the full report »
