Sonke mourns the loss of anti-gender-based violence activist Tamsyn Elaine Allison

Today Sonke Gender Justice pays its respects and tribute to anti Gender-Based Violence (GBV) activist Tamsyn Elaine Allison. Sonke is profoundly saddened by the news of her passing due to post-birth complications recently.

Tamsyn changed lives through her activism and will be remembered for spearheading the noble campaign against GBV gathering at the Durban City hall in September 2019 as part of a national intervention.

Tamsyn was also known for her work with Collective Action and Conversations for a Just SA.

To Tamsyn’s partner Devan Deyzel, children, friends, fellow activists we send our deepest condolences for your loss. We mourn with you. We commit to continue the battle to turn the tide against GBV and femicides in our country.
