#JFM - Who we are

JFM Campaign Leadership

The JFM Steering Committee is comprised of leaders from JFM chapters across the Southern African region, who bring their experience to the campaign as ex-miner organisations and supporting civil society organisations in each country.  The JFM Steering Committee strategise and plan the JFM campaign’s direction and actions. This includes the Management Committee, which holds fiduciary responsibility and actions the Steering Committee’s decisions at an operational and organisational level.

JFM Regional Chapters

JFM Chapters work on the ground within mineworker communities severely affected by the occupational illnesses of TB and Silicosis. Chapters are comprised of community members and groupings, such as local ex-miner organisations, civil society, church groups, women’s groups, student and university collectives, and more. Each Chapter is independent and draws upon its localised needs in contributing to the transnational JFM campaign. Chapters continue to grow and currently there are JFM Chapters in Lesotho, Eswatini, South Africa (Eastern Cape & Free State), Botswana and Mozambique.
