AFSC mourns the loss of Nelson Mandela

The American Friends Service Committee mourns the loss of Nelson Mandela, whose passing today is a time for reflection on the astonishing transformation he spearheaded in South Africa and the inspiring leadership he provided after apartheid fell.

A symbol of global peacemaking, Mandela was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 along with South African President F.W. de Klerk.
