Black Sash

The aim of Black Sash is to work towards the realisation of socio-economic rights, as outlined in the South African Constitution, with emphasis on social security and social protection for particularly women and children and the most vulnerable. They believe the implementation of socio-economic rights demands open, transparent and accountable governance (state, corporate and civil society) and should result in significant reduction in poverty and inequality. To this end they promote active civic engagement by a strong and vibrant civil society.
