Who We Are

 

Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition is a conglomeration of more than 75 civic society organisations. It was originally formed in August 2001 as a collective response to the multi faceted crisis of governance and legitimacy.

 

These organisations work together to bring about democratic change in the country. Our membership draws from churches, women’s groups, social movements, residents associations, labor unions, human rights lawyers, teachers groups and health professionals.

 

The coalition has 7 committees that is; Advocacy, Information, Peace building, Gender, Youth, Arts and Culture and Human rights.  The Coalition works on human rights issues, democratic governance, political freedoms, women’s rights, electoral reform, peace and development. It also carries out research on socio-economic and political issues affecting Zimbabweans.

 

The organization’s vision is to see a democratic Zimbabwe, and believes civil society has a critical role to play in nurturing and sustaining a culture and respect for principles and values of good governance, openness and accountability within Zimbabwean society. To this end, it enjoys both regional and international attention as one of Zimbabwe's biggest and most vocal pro-democracy advocacy groups in the country.
