DDP Senior Programs Officer Sphamandla Mhlongo at the Activist Exchange in Johannesburg.
The Rivonia Circle, in partnership with DDP and 9 other organizations hosted an Activist Exchange on 9 August 2022. This is an event for 600 activists to gather from different organizations to discuss topical issues affecting South Africa and catalyze new networks and collaborations for social and political action through co-created campaigns and action programs. Following in the footsteps of the 1956 women who marched for their democratic rights, WE THE PEOPLE, gathered, exchanged ideas, built skills, and march in solidarity to claim the people’s power to govern.
Activist Exchange is an event for capacity building of community and NGO activists to learn new activist skills and tactics from others and contest ideas about South Africa’s biggest challenges. The Activist Exchange builds solidarity and the co-creation of contemporary campaigns for change.
This was held at Constitutional Hill, Johannesburg.
