Mission

Our mission is to promote and enforce human rights and to strengthen constitutional democracy in South Africa, as part of a broader civil society movement. We do this mainly through strategic public interest litigation to enforce the rights entrenched in the South African Bill of Rights, as well as law and policy advocacy, supported by and movement building to promote awareness of human rights and social justice issues.
