Aron Halevi

2020, Ron Hering Awards

“I create a connected, vibrant and integrated world by listening with care and using my creativity and courage to heal myself and the world around me.”

Aron Halevi is a social innovator living near Cape Town, South Africa.  In August 2019, a 19-year-old student was murdered.  16 days later, Aron led the #99949 campaign (Nelson Mandela’s prison number was #44464), calling men to stand up and so no to gender based violence. Over 100,000 men stood in silence at 9am on the 9th day of the 9th month 4/for 9 minutes – a call to action, to be seen, show outrage, stand with other men, and bring men into the solution of Gender Based Violence (GBV). Aron’s other notable social change work includes a project with an ex-convict, gangster and drug dealer, Larry Joe.  Combining music, film and social media, Aron collaborated with Joe, recording an album in his prison cell,  and conducting interactive workshops with over 100,000 high school students around South Africa and the theme of “Changing the World One Man at a Time.”
