The ZA Rights Goodwill Collection has been carefully curated to remind us all of our rights and obligations as we strive for unity in our diversity.  The campaign aims to expand as an archive covering all our rights from A – Z, with inspiring iconographic fonts and designs that individuals can identify with and personalise. In this way all these fundamental concepts are covered, from freedom of expression, opinion, beliefs and sexual preference, to the right to health care, and gender equality for all, regardless of differences, be they political, religious, racial, academic, gender or wealth related.

Said Kneo Mokgopa from the Nelson Mandela Foundation Communications and Advocacy office:  “Through the 2019 Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture with Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng, the Nelson Mandela Foundation began exploring ‘constitutionalism as an instrument for transformation’ and investing in questions on constitutionalism more broadly. We developed the ZA Rights campaign as a way of keeping Madiba’s legacy alive, as a way of invigorating a passion and ownership of the Bill of Rights by the people. We wanted to explore ways of engaging with sections of the Constitution in the ongoing work of creating justice and equality, and the campaign does just that.”

By purchasing the products, one is performing an act of goodwill which supports the work the Foundation is doing in keeping Tata’s legacy alive. Join the movement by supporting the ZARights Goodwill Collectioncampaign and wear your rights with pride.
