The ACTION Support Centre is in the process of finalising arrangements to open a satellite office in Cape Town. With our newly appointed Inter-religious Research and Relations Facilitator, Steven Leach, and with Steering Committee Chair Fatima Swartz both based in Cape Town, as well as a lot of interest in the ASC catalysed through our engagement at the WRI conference, it makes strategic sense to have a physical space in the City. It will serve as a central focal point for ACTION members, supporters and programmes based in and around the area, and from which local activities can be organized.
The Cape Town office will be based at the District 6 Museum, an institution committed to remembering the legacy of a community uprooted and forcibly removed by the Apartheid System. We aim to launch the new office in August 2014.
