Ekta Parishad is people’s movement dedicated to non-violent principles of action. Our activists work towards building community-based governance (gram swaraj), local self-reliance (gram swawlamban) and responsible government (jawabdeh sarkar.) Our aim is to see India’s poorest people gain control over livelihood resources, especially land, water and forest.
We are a federation of approximately 11,000 community based organizations and have thousands of individual members. We are currently operating in 11 states working for the land and livelihood rights of India’s most marginalized communities (tribals, Dalits, nomadic communities, agricultural labourers, small and marginal farmers, etc.)
