About Dalit Solidarity Network UK
Dalit Solidarity Network UK (DSN-UK) is an organisation working towards equality and social justice for Dalits (formerly known as ‘untouchables’) both in the UK and other caste-affected countries, in particular in South Asia. We are a small pioneering headquarters organisation in the UK, working jointly with other likeminded groups, building strategic alliances to maximise advocacy opportunities and build a stronger network of organisations raising the issue of caste discrimination both in the UK and in caste-affected countries.
Our aims are to change values and practices through policy changes worldwide. And our goals are raise awareness through education and to empower Dalit communities in Asia and the UK and support their demands for justice - creating an effective advocacy programme on their behalf.
