African Grandmothers Tribunal: Seeking justice at the frontlines of the AIDS crisis

Discrimination and inequality place a heavy burden on the African grandmothers who are struggling to support communities devastated by HIV and AIDS.

The Stephen Lewis Foundation is convening a people's tribunal to shine a public light on the violation of their rights. Six African Grandmothers from across sub-Saharan Africa will present their personal testimonies before the Tribunal's judges: Gloria Steinem, Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, Joy Phumaphi and Stephen Lewis.

The Grandmothers will speak about the most pressing issues they are facing, such as property grabbing, loss of housing, sexual violence, and food and income insecurity. Based on their testimonies, the Tribunal will chart a new path forward for protecting African Grandmothers' rights.
