Description

What does a God of liberation say to the on-going Dalit struggle for justice and equal rights when prejudice and discrimination are present in every area of life?

In India, there are over 300 million Dalits, those who for thousands of years, have been seen as being worthless and untouchable. What does a God of liberation say to the on-going Dalit struggle for justice and equal rights when prejudice and discrimination are present in every area of life?

This is the first in a series of seminars on the theology and spirituality that underpins Amos Trust’s commitment to justice and hope for the forgotten. We are delighted to welcome these special guest speakers on Dalit rights:

  • activist Revd Dr Vincent Manoharan from Tamil Nadu in India
  • long-term Amos partner and friend Rev Dr Jacob Devadason
  • Dr Elizabeth Joy from the Churches Dalit support Network

There will also time set aside for questions and discussion. Lunch will be provided.

Sub-note:
Dalit means 'broken' and is a name taken by those who were once called Untouchables within the caste system, and are now officially called Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.
