In 2012-2013 she organized an anti-slavery collaboration among the African American Legacy Families; the descendants of Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, and Solomon Northrup; and Dalit leaders from across America. She wrote a Declaration of Empathy for the Dalits and convened an historic and well-attended Signing Event on Capitol Hill. In the 113th Congress she drafted legislation calling for an end to Dalit atrocities, the second official U.S. statement condemning the practice of “untouchability”.
