INDIA: End Untouchability

Untouchability in India (prejudice against what are considered the lowest caste, the Dailts), though technically illegal since 1950, still affects 167 million people, or 16% of the population. Members of the lowest rank of Indian society face discrimination at every level, access to education and medical facilities, restrictions on where they can live and what jobs they can have. This trailer for Article 17, the campaign launched by Video Volunteers in 2012, to empower the Dalits to tell their own stories through video, to achieve the goal, in the words of Stalin K, Managing Trustee of Video Volunteers, "the end of the 2000-year-old atrocity of untouchability in all its forms."
