A non-partisan collective of civic initiatives aims to amplify the voice of civil society to strengthen and enhance democracy.


 The convenors of this network aim to unite concerned South Africans from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. The group recognises the vital role that civil society plays in the development and progress of the nation.

The network will focus on voter education, voter registration, IEC election monitoring, and policy discussions to ensure that the concerns and aspirations of all South Africans are well-represented and duly addressed. By working collaboratively, the group aim to empower and strengthen the voice of civil society, thereby fostering a more vibrant and engaged democracy with an active citizenry. 

The convenors of this network are:

Braam Hanekom – Centre For Public Witness
