Honoring Social Justice Leaders Worldwide

Suvash Darnal’s Work

Suvash has left behind a body of literature comprising articles, reports and books that he authored or co-edited. As he grew into a leader, he offered incisive analyses of Nepali politics and society through his speeches and presentations at various events.

He helped establish two organizations —Jagaran Media Center and Samata Foundation—that work to raise Dalit issues in the media and to bring policy changes based on research and advocacy.

Videos and transcripts of his lectures and speeches will be available on this website as it is developed further.
