Human Liberation Day: Live talks organised by Ambedkar International Center

 

We are all aware of India's recent socio-political developments (NRC/CAA, COVID 19, Hathras, etc.) and their unfavorable impact on minorities and oppressed communities. However, it is difficult to grasp how these seemingly disparate incidents are all connected and explain, in a way, their origins.

It is interesting to note that Dr. Ambedkar had predicted such an outcome for India. To learn more about this while also understanding what advice Dr. Ambedkar has for us about these times, consider joining this upcoming event.

Addressed by the most eminent scholars and thinkers (Dr. B. Mungekar, Dr. Suresh Mane, Prof. Vivek Kumar, Prof. Kancha Ilaiah and others) from the Bahujan community back in India and from the diaspora here in the US, this event attempts to help us make sense of this and possibly share a way forward.

We request you to attend the event and share this with your friends interested in seeing a secular and democratic India, assuring justice, liberty, equality, and fraternity to every one of its citizens.
