In addition to her role with the Revolutionary Love Project—an organization that champions love as a public ethic and wellspring for social change—Kaur is a civil rights activist, attorney, award-winning filmmaker, and faith leader. Her social justice campaigns have impacted policy change on hate crimes, racial profiling, immigration detention, solitary confinement, marriage equality, and internet freedom. Kaur also founded Groundswell Movement, the Yale Visual Law Project and Faithful Internet, initiatives that equip new generations with tools for social change. During her work inside supermax prisons, on the military base at Guantanamo, and at sites of mass shootings, she identified what she believes is a key element for social change: the ethic of love.

The event is being sponsored by the Department of Humanities, Social Science, Social Work, and Education and the RVCC Women’s Center.
