Solidarity Across the Globe

Solidarity is embodied wherever people overcome barriers that prevent us from seeing one another as fully human and deserving of respect. Protestants and Catholics across India celebrated Dalit Liberation last week. The annual event, which is held on the Sunday closest to International Human Rights Day, called on all Indians to work to end the caste mentality. Dalits continue to face outright discrimination and social and economic marginalization.
