Where: Milpitas Library Auditorium
160 North Main Street
Milpitas, CA 95035
Description: In India there is an entire stratum of Dalits that are compelled by tradition and the caste system to only clean toilets, latrines, and sewers. The sewer cleaners are actually expected to dive without protective gear in sewer water to clear blockages.

Why does this still exist in modern-day India? Join us to listen to the voices of manual latrine and sewer scavengers.

Free and open to the public
