Aruna Roy Shares Her Thoughts on Community Organizing
On our fifth day in India, we visited Barefoot College and visited with Aruna Roy, a social and political activist who has worked on government transparency, food security and improving rural livelihoods. Aruna is founder of Mazdoor Kisan Shakati Sangathan (MKSS), an organization designed to strengthen participatory democratic processes, so that ordinary citizens can live their lives with dignity and justice.
Aruna spoke to us about her experience organizing communities and how it led her to advocate for the empowerment of girls and women. Listen firsthand to Aruna Roy share her thoughts on strategies for movement building and importance of getting buy-in from the people the movement affects. Take a listen.
