I was asked to share my insights on the topic Reparations Advocacy: The Case of Khulumani
Support Group, drawing on my experience with Khulumani in the Western Cape (WC) over
the past 11 years. In my paper I will track the organization from its humble beginning to the
present. Some of the campaigns that I will deal with are national campaigns and others are
regional initiatives. Both have interesting and important lessons for victims’ groups starting
up or operating in African countries and elsewhere in the world. (excerpt)
