SECTION27 Executive Director Mark Heywood has sent a letter to more than 20 of South Africa’s top CEOs and business leaders, including Adi Enthoven, Stephen Saad, Adrian Gore, Roger Jardine, Cheryl Carolus and Sipho Pityana.
Heywood is trying to get business to see financial support to civil society advocacy organisations as a necessary investment in our democracy and Constitutional objective of social justice, not just a CSI box-ticking exercise.
Also, he wants them to get over their fear of association with in-your-face organisations such as SECTION27.
SECTION27 is a public interest law centre that seeks to achieve substantive equality and social justice in South Africa.
