Take the Bully Out of the Pulpit: Remarks By Valarie Kaur

Posted on October 26th, 2010 | Filed under InterViews, Video

Valarie Kaur is an award-winning filmmaker, public speaker, and writer who has advocated on behalf of communities swept up in hate crimes, racial profiling, and immigration policies since September 11, 2001. A third-generation Sikh American, Valarie has been called “a woman of extraordinary courage and vision,” an “inspiring millennial,” and“one of the most exceptional speakers/thinkers“ in the next generation of public intellectuals.  She takes all as compliments that reflect a superb team of collaborators and thinkers in each of her projects.  Valarie studied religion at Stanford University and Harvard Divinity School.  Now at Yale Law School, she harnesses multiple tools – speaking, writing, filmmaking, and lawyering – in order to help raise people’s stories in service of justice.  She invites you to engage her blog as a forum for authentic reflection on race and religion, hate and healing in America.
