VALARIE KAUR is a seasoned civil rights activist and prophetic voice “at the forefront of progressive change.” She burst into American consciousness after the 2016 election when her Watch Night Service address went viral with 30+ million views. Her question “Is this the darkness of the tomb – or the darkness of the womb?” reframed the political moment and became a mantra for people fighting for change. As a lawyer, filmmaker, and innovator, Valarie has helped win policy change on multiple fronts and now leads the Revolutionary Love Project to champion love as a force for justice. She founded Groundswell, the Yale Visual Law Project and Faithful Internet. A daughter of Sikh farmers in California, Valarie earned degrees at Stanford University, Harvard Divinity School, and Yale Law School. Valarie’s new book, See No Stranger: A Memoir and Manifesto of Revolutionary Love, expands on her “blockbuster” TED Talk and hits the shelves June 2020.
