The 1st Global Conference on Defending Dalit Rights would not be possible without the ongoing participation, support, commitment, and dedication of each of the Global Conference Organizing Committee (GCOC) members. Since last year, with the leadership of the ICDR, this collaborative group has been working at various levels to ensure that the Global Conference is a success, and most importantly, that a broader effort to develop and foster a more cohesive global movement in support of Dalit people worldwide may be realized. Through their time, resources, outreach, research, network affiliations, intellectual and professional capacities, and solidarity, the GCOC members have all been essential to making this Global Conference a reality.
