About Khulumani

The Khulumani Support Group was founded in 1995 in anticipation of the establishment of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), by survivors of gross human rights violations, as a mechanism to advocate for and support themselves and others as the country moved towards the process of exploring the brutality of our past. From its very beginnings, Khulumani has been an organisation driven by its members, working for its members.

Since then, KSG has grown to have over 55,000 members across the whole country who all actively lead and participate in programmes to secure reparations and redress for the victims and survivors of apartheid crimes and to ensure a just, democratic and open society in South Africa.

Khulumani programmes focus on healing and memory, reparations, sustainable livelihoods, and advocacy for the human rights and dignity of survivors.

As part of the broader work of Khulumani, in 2002 a lawsuit was launched against multinational corporations that allegedly aided and abetted the commission of the crimes of apartheid. This lawsuit is the focus of this blog and the Red Card Campaign at large, which includes the Khulumani People’s Justice Fan Centre based in Soweto for the duration of the World Cup football tournament.

    Hello, my name is William and I am creating a campaign at Arizona State University to raise awareness about torture in other countries. It would be awesome if you could sponsor my campaign or issue some materials to get your name out on campus and inform people about this huge problem. I feel that not a lot of students have a firm grasp on the magnitude of human torture. It would be nice if I could have some support in this study and also help broadcast your organization. Please contact me back if you have any ideas or would like to support the movement on the Arizona State University campus!

    Thank you for your time.

    Sincerely,

    William Cartee
