Dignity Post (DP) is a global digital platform. It raises the voice of the voiceless people like Dalit and other marginalized peoples living in South Asia and beyond. In other words, it is a digital window created to disseminate all the activities related to global social justice from a single platform for promoting inclusiveness, Human rights and democracy of Dalits and marginalized communities. The DP raises the voice of those people who feel discriminated and cornered in the name of politics, religion, race and borders. To respect, every citizen’s right to live a dignified life we want to end all divisions fueled by conflict, civil war, intolerance and injustice. The Dignity Post will contribute to peace, dignity and hope to the people by giving voice, strengthen to the oppressed and the marginalized sections of the society and changing social norms, attitudes towards Dalit and vulnerable groups. By promoting “Together for Change” approach and giving “Voice to the Voiceless” it will contribute to social cohesion, harmony and peace. Leaving no one behind from getting access to information is our key goal.
Like Dalit, data show about 260 million other marginalized people are struggling for dignity and social justice across the world.
The dignity Post’s main objective is to advocate for the rights of Dalit as well as others vulnerable DWD communities. DWD is the term used to address various forms of discrimination, including caste, work and birth-based discrimination. Many think DWD prevails only in the South Asian continent, but it’s everywhere in the world.
Affected communities face discrimination based on their birth into certain castes/social groups. And those occupying the lowest position in the social hierarchy are considered to be ‘unclean’. Communities have segregated living spaces, with severely restricted access to public and private services of housing, water and sanitation, health, education, land and employment. Typically associated with notions of ‘purity’ and ‘pollution’, this form of discrimination includes the practice of ‘Untouchability’, which imposes strong restrictions on the community. Consequently, human development indicators show a huge gap between the general population and DWD communities.
Considering the aforementioned discrimination the DP will strive for an equitable society for excluded people, we will raise the issues of Dalit, women, LGBTI, differently abled people, indigenous, religious minorities, women trafficking, labor migration and marginalized people. We will connect them for mutual respect, dignity and social justice.
Dignity Channel is a Voice of A section of disadvantaged groups, namely Dalit and marginalized communitywho have been historically excluded from their access to state mechanisms. They are exploited. Despite all these odds they can’t come out of social discrimination as they feel insecure, economically weak and inferior than other castes.
Consequently, they have been facing a series of social and economic discrimination. Society never respect them, nor the mainstream media gives due space to their issues. Even as their contribution to the society equally remarkable than any other castes they have never enjoyed respect in the society. Their contribution is largely undermined.
For them, living dignified life is still a matter of cry. They are never encouraged to continue the good works. In the given context Dignity channel aims to give them adequate space so that their voices could be heard. This digital platform will give space to voiceless Dalit, marginalized and minority people.
Dignity Channel will share stories of dominated, discriminated, abused or socially exploited people. It will equally raise voice against rights violations of those communities. Its mission is to inspire, empower, motivate and connect those people to change their backwardness.
The aim of Dignity Talks is to create such an environment so that people will begin to respect each to other, end discrimination and inhuman acts against voiceless people and cases of positive change will be highlighted. Dignity Channel organizes News program, Debete, Talks show and story telling on Dalit and marginalized issue on different themes.
Media can bring the huge change in to society of nation wide and World wide . That’s why DM has created the own channel.
