Dussehra: The Battle Between Good and Evil is Within Us, Sunita Viswanath

Sunita Viswanath will speak on the solidarity necessary at a time like this — with nationalist movements around the world, with the pandemic, and global conflicts.

Sunita is a progressive Hindu committed to doing seva (service) in the world so that the neediest and voiceless are empowered and can thrive. 

She is the cofounder of Women for Afghan Women (in 2001), Sadhana: Coalition of Progressive Hindus (in 2011), and Hindus for Human Rights (in 2019). Sunita was honored by President Obama at the White House in 2015 as a “Champion of Change” for her work. Sunita has edited “Women for Afghan Women: Shattering Myths and Claiming the Future” (Palgrave McMillan, 2003), a book of essays. Sunita is Hindu Religious Life Advisor at Columbia University.
