VALARIE KAUR is a civil rights leader, lawyer, award-winning filmmaker, educator, and
founder of the Revolutionary Love Project. Valarie became an activist when a Sikh father
and family friend was the first person murdered in hate violence in the aftermath of
9/11. For two decades, in his memory, Valarie has led visionary campaigns to tell untold
stories and change policy on issues ranging from hate crimes to digital freedom. Her
work ignited a national movement to reclaim love as a force for justice. Today, the
Revolutionary Love Project is seeding networked communities of practice across the
country to build the beloved community. A daughter of Punjabi Sikh farmers in
California, Valarie lifts up her vision for America in her acclaimed TED Talk and #1 LA
Times Bestseller See No Stranger: A Memoir and Manifesto of Revolutionary Love.
