Mailing inviting people to a Working Briefing on The Progress of the Election in South Africa, hosted by The Africa Fund and the House Subcommittee on Africa on Capitol Hill on March 15, 1994. The mailing says the legacy of apartheid runs deep, creating many obstacles to achieving full electoral participation; these include political violence which takes the lives of 12 people a day and the threatened boycott of the election by right wing groups under the umbrella of the Freedom Alliance. The mailing says the briefing will include Bill Lynch and Venita Vinson who have just returned from campaigning with Nelson Mandela and working with the democratic forces in South Africa and that they will be joined by Bethuel Maserumule, a member of the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa, who oversees voter education and election activities for the Congress Of South African Trade Unions (COSATU). The mailing discusses the African National Congress (ANC) and Artists for a Free South Africa. The mailing includes About the Presenters… which includes biographies of William Lynch, Mayor Norman B. Rice, Venita Vinson, Danny Glover, and Bethuel Maserumule.
