Ms. Dhlamini will speak about the politics of intersectional activism in South Africa through her own experiences with and leadership of mass mobilization efforts at the University of Cape Town such as #FeesMustFall and #EndOutsourcing. She is a fellow with the Human Science Research Council (HSRC), University of California Los Angeles and the HIVOS in Leadership for Stigma Reduction Programme. Lindiwe is the Founder and Director of Injabulo Projects a Not-for Profit Organization that conducts an Anti-Bullying project in high schools using an intersectional lens to alleviate the scourge of bullying in South African schools, an Incest Survivor Project and an LGBTIAQ+support project.

This talk contributes to our series on Youth, Democracy, and Dissent that explores how young Africans and Americans are at theforefront of movements that speak to the interests of young people at a global level: education, employment, racial, gender, and political equality and confront, subvert, and transform the policies and institutions that are intended to shape their lives.
