2nd National Consultative Conference

27 - 30 September 2002

This National Policy Conference was held over the four days of September 27th to 30th. It was attended by 687 delegates from ANC national, provincial, regional and branch level structures, from the ANC Youth and Women`s Leagues, COSATU, the SACP, SANCO, COSAS and SASCO. It was marked by extremely high levels of active participation, discussion and debate.

The ANC is a national liberation movement. It was formed in 1912 to unite the African people and spearhead the struggle for fundamental political, social and economic change.

The ANC’s key objective is the creation of a united, non-racial, non-sexist and democratic society.

This means the liberation of Africans in particular and black people in general from political and economic bondage. It means uplifting the quality of life of all South Africans, especially the poor.
