Cape Town, South Africa – 7th October 2019 – ‘The Voice SA’ Season 2 winner, Craig Lucas has just been announced as the Global Goodwill Ambassador for the award-winning Human Rights NPO, The Justice Desk.
Following Lucas’ success, he has used his platform to stand up for the fundamental Human Rights that all people are entitled to.
The Justice Desk operates in South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe, and empowers local people to understand and defend their human rights, in order to build safer communities for all. They work hard to educate, advocate for and equip youth, vulnerable groups, civil society, and governments in human rights, justice and advocacy.
In 6 short years, their impact is already at over 200,000 people.
The organisation was recently in the spotlight when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (Prince Harry and Meghan Markle) who are avid supporters of the organisation, visited them as their first official stop on their Royal Tour.
The Justice Desk are thrilled to work with Lucas as they are great admirers not only of his music, but his expression about his personal life and values. Lucas’ open letter about his sexuality is one example of these values. Freedom from Discrimination and the Right to Equality are just some examples of Human Rights that Craig Lucas and The Justice Desk are proud to promote.
When asked about the appointment, Lucas commented saying: “the time I’ve spent with The Justice Desk up to now has been incredibly eye-opening! I’ve learnt so much about human rights and the importance of justice work. I look forward to working with their incredible team to grow as an advocate for justice, as well as to make a difference across South Central Africa!”
There are talks of Craig Lucas performing a show to support The Justice Desk towards the end of this year, with speculation that this might fall on his birthday. More information will be confirmed on The Justice Desk website (www.justicedesk.org) and social media pages in the coming month or so.
Craig Lucas and The Justice Desk are excited to work together in the fight for justice.
