Women coming together in an open and welcoming community to be challenged and inspired, to rest and be renewed, and to discover who God wants us to be
August 9–11, 2019
Keynote Speaker for Women’s Connection 2019
Valarie Kaur is a seasoned civil rights activist, award-winning filmmaker, lawyer, faith leader, and founder of the Revolutionary Love Project. Her social justice campaigns have helped win policy change on hate crimes, racial profiling, immigration detention, solitary confinement, marriage equality, and Internet freedom. She founded Groundswell Movement, the Yale Visual Law Project and Faithful Internet, initiatives that equip new generations with tools for social change. During her work, inside supermax prisons, on the military base at Guantanamo, and at sites of mass shootings, she identified a surprising key element for social change: the ethic of love. Today she leads the Revolutionary Love Project to champion love as a public ethic and wellspring for social change. Kaur earned degrees at Stanford University, Harvard Divinity School, and Yale Law School. She has an honorary doctorate from the California Institute of Integral Studies. She is a member of the California Bar. Born and raised in Clovis, California, Valarie lives in her home state with her film partner/husband Sharat Raju and son Kavi.
