Thanks for joining us for our summer contest series where we’ve traveled around the world to see what different artists are doing to make a difference! This week takes us to India with Caedmon’s Call and an organization called the Dalit Freedom Network.
Here’s what Caedmon’s Call has to say about it:
Recently, we’ve become aware of a heartbreaking reality facing a significant portion of India’s population, people known as the Dalits. Due to an ancient Hindu value system which labels them ‘untouchable and unworthy’, Dalits are discarded, sold into prostitution, often tortured, and forced to work in unspeakable conditions from sun up to sun down. On our recent trip to India, we met many of the Dalit people and were further inspired to help spread awareness. Dalit Freedom Network campaigns against the unjust treatment facing Daits and offers them their only sense of hope. Find out how you can get involved at www.dalitnetwork.org
So this week we’re giving a way a signed and handwritten copy of the lyrics to “There is a Reason” by Caedmon’s Call from their CD, Overdressed to 3 people!
So enter today’s contest by posting a comment with your favorite Indian food dish and your answer to the following trivia question:
