Black Doek Movement SA calls on men to take a stand against GBV: Dereleen James

In 2013, Eldorado Park mother Dereleen James wrote a letter to her friends, documenting her struggle with trying to get her 17-year-old son off the drug tik.

The letter went viral. Others added their stories to the letter, and more people read it.

This letter was eventually sent to then-President Jacob Zuma. Years later, James has dedicated her life’s work to helping her community.

Dereleen James continues to fight against the scourge of Gender-Based violence, child abuse and drugs in her community.

She is also with the Black Doek Movement in South Africa, she says more men need to take a stand against the violence directed at women and children.
