I’ve been thinking about the kisan protest for months now. I've been educating myself with articles, talking to friends and community leaders and making donations to organizations like the Sikh Coalition And Khalsa Aid. But let me be clear: I am not an expert. I want to learn more and I know lots of us want to know what is happening in India and what we can do.
That’s why I’m really grateful to have Mallika Kaur on this special episode of Brown Mom.
Mallika Kaur is a writer, lawyer, community organizer who focuses on human rights, with a specialization in gender and minority issues in the United States and South Asia. Her new book “Faith, Gender, and Activism in the Punjab Conflict: The Wheat Fields Still Whisper” was recently published by Palgrave MacMillan. She is the co-founder of the Sikh Family Center, the only Sikh American organization focused on gender-based violence. Kaur teaches skills-based and experiential social justice classes at UC Berkeley School of Law.
