What is it?

C19 People’s Coalition is an emerging civil society collective including community structures; trade unions; informal workers’ organisations; civics; social movements; rural groups; national and provincial NGOs across all social sectors; frontline responders such as HCWs and shelters; migrants’ and refugees’ organisations; public interest law firms and faith based organisations.

What does it do?

The Coalition seeks to ensure that South Africa’s response to COVID-19 is rooted in social justice and democratic principles and recognises our duty to prioritise those who are most vulnerable, who face the pandemic with hunger, weakened immune systems and poor access to housing, health care and social safety nets.

The Programme of Action is a call for social solidarity in South Africa for all of us to work together to contain infection, reduce transmission and mitigate the social and political impacts of the COVID-19 virus.
