AfriForum, an independent initiative of Solidarity, is a non-profit institution that strives to counteract what it sees as the active and passive withdrawal of minorities from public affairs in South Africa, and claims to represent minorities in South Africa in public fora.

AfriForum's Charter states, "We, the compilers and supporters of this charter, exercise the deliberate choice to lead a meaningful existence as Afrikaners, with our deeply-rooted foundation at the southernmost tip of Africa. We know no other home."

AfriForum launches campaigns for the protection and expansion of civil rights, as described in the South African Constitution and in international conventions on the collective rights of minority communities. Specific issues on which AfriForum has expressed concern include what it sees as: increasingly racial thinking by government, political meddling in sports, ideologically and racially driven policies on multilingualism, crime and the haphazard changing of placenames.
