Valarie Kaur, born into a family of Sikh farmers who settled in California in 1913, is a seasoned civil rights activist, award-winning filmmaker, lawyer, faith leader, and founder of the Revolutionary Love Project, which seeks to champion love as a public ethic and wellspring for social action.
She began to document hate crimes against Sikh and Muslim Americans after 9/11 and produced the award-winning film Divided We Fall. She has worked extensively on hate crimes, racial profiling, immigration detention, solitary confinement, mass shootings, marriage equality, and Internet freedom and founded the Groundswell Movement, “America’s largest multi-faith online organizing network.”
She is currently a Senior Fellow at Auburn Theological Seminary and her book, Revolutionary Love, will be out early next year.
