A letter from the President

On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, it is time to recognize the rights and dignity of nearly 300 million Dalit people worldwide. We appeal on international policy-makers to make good on their broken promises to govern towards increased social justice, equality, inclusion and the recognition of human rights. 

The International Commission for Dalit Rights (ICDR) calls on member states of the United Nations to endorse the “Draft Principles and Guidelines for the Effective Elimination of Discrimination based on Work and Descent” by the UN Human Rights Council. The UN Principles and Guidelines constitute a strong tool to encourage specific anti-discrimination legislation and relevant policy measures for governments and their agencies, UN and other international agencies, educational institutions, non-governmental organizations and the private sector.

Dalit Organizations Survey
The Dalit organizations survey goal is to assess and analyze institutional challenges of Dalit or pro-Dalit organizations in caste- affected countries. This survey helps the ICDR to effectively implement development and change programs and expand technical cooperation to enhance institutional capacity of ICDR’s associates and partner organizations.

In 2012, we are conducting a survey of Dalit Rights groups in South Asia to bring greater international awareness to community challenges and learn how ICDR can support the needs and goals of local organizations.   

We request that you complete the following short survey and share it with other leaders in your state or community.
