RSVP:   Please click here or send email to [email protected]

We at AID-DC are very excited to invite you to our ninth annual fundraising dinner Milan on Saturday September 28th at 5:30PM at Bethesda, Maryland. This year, our special guest will be Jayaram Venkatesan, co-founder of Arappor Iyakkam (Tamil for “Non-Violent Movement for Justice”). Jayaram‘s interest in social justice and livelihood generation was deepened when he began volunteering for AID-US in 2002. He moved back to India in 2007 to work full time on social justice issues.

Jayaram founded Arappor Iyakkam in 2015 to build a society where citizens are informed and empowered to ensure government officials are attending to the needs of and are accountable to ordinary citizens. In the few years of its existence, Arappor has grown to engage thousands of volunteers to expose some of the most corrupt political officials of the Tamil Nadu government using creative campaigns and mobilization efforts.  Today, this is one of the foremost movements against corruption in India.   Jayaram will share Arappor volunteers’ persistent efforts to be changemakers pushing for transparent governance.
Please save the date and do join us. We look forward to hosting you.
