The Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Adv. Michael Masutha will address the Adams Night Champions against Gender Based Violence camp in Meadowlands, Soweto as part of the Department’s activities for the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children Abuse campaign. The event is being organised by Khuluma Ndoda with support from the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development.

The Adam’s Night Camp is a concept that explores various ways of improving the relationship between men and young boys with the aim of eliminating socio-cultural beliefs and practices that lead to gender-based violence.

The camp also seeks to equip men and boys with the fundamental tenants of a democratised society; to enable them to see women and children as human beings entitled to safety and the right to enjoying the freedom enshrined in our Constitution. Members of the media are invited as follows:
