Summary

amandla.mobi is an independent, community advocacy organisation that seeks to build a more just and people-powered Mzansi.

OPEN is a network of 20 independent, non-profit, nationally-based organisation working on multiple issues, with differences between one country and the next, but all sharing a common set of values and a general strategic orientation. We all conduct activism using largely digital tools, like outreach on email and social media, common tactics like online petitions, calls to parliament, organising offline protests and actions, and volunteering in our communities.
