If you don’t know who Valarie Kaur is, you absolutely should. Kaur is a civil rights activist, lawyer, award-winning filmmaker, faith leader, and educator. She is also the founder of the Revolutionary Love Project, an organization that “produces stories, tools, curricula, conferences, films, and mass mobilizations rooted in the ethic of love.” Originally hailing from Clovis, California, where her family settled as Sikh farmers in 1913, Kaur was first mobilized after the murder of a family friend in a hate crime following 9/11. She has since become a prominent Sikh American voice and community leader. Take a look at her recent talk at TEDWomen 2017, where she urges us to reclaim love as revolutionary act.

Parker J. Palmer will join Kaur onstage for a dialogue at Revolutionary Love Conference 2018, a conference taking place from April 6-8 in New York City. For more information, click here.
