Vale Tamsyn Elaine Allison (South Africa) Anti-Gender Based Violence Activist

We are saddened to hear of the sudden loss of anti-gender based violence activist Tamsyn Elaine Allison.  We are profoundly saddened and pay our deep respects to your husband, children, family and community at this time.  We mourn with you.

Tamsyn  changed lives with her activism, she spoke out where many could not, she brought light to those in darkness.  She spearheaded collective actions and undertook  vigils in Durban.   She was a strong leader and mentor at  Rise Up Against Gender Based Violence  and is well remembered for spearheading the South African campaign against Gender Based Violence in Durban City Hall in September 2019.

Your work will be remembered – the loss is immeasurable but so is the love left behind.  Love is the way you live on after you are gone.  Rest in Peace and Love Tamsyn
