UN Declaration: A CDWD Symposium

July 13 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm UTC+5.5

Communities Discriminated on Work and Descent (CDWD), including but not limited to Dalit, Roma, Quilombola, and Haratine communities, face systemic discrimination and marginalization across the world. CDWD are the people directly affected by Discrimination based on Work and Descent (DWD). They continue to face extreme forms of isolation and discrimination, which acts as an obstacle to their attainment of civil, political, economic, cultural and social rights. While efforts have been made to address the challenges faced by individual communities, there remains a need to approach this issue from a global CDWD perspective.

It is in this context that the Global Forum of Communities Discriminated on Work and Descent (GFoD), in partnership with Ambedkar International Mission, Bahujan Scholars, The Inclusivity Project (TIP) and other networks is organizing a symposium in Rutgers University, NJ on July 13, 2024.

The discussion involving academics, activists, and diaspora community members seeks to amplify the voices of CDWD and advance their rights and dignity through advocacy, research, and community engagement. It further focuses on CDWD globally, shifting the focus from individual communities to a broader perspective. This discussion also sheds light on the diaspora community members and explores effective strategies for advancing social justice and the inclusion of CDWD in the global platform.T
