India Partners reveals the plight of the “untouchables” through music, film and artistic expression at its annual spring benefit banquet

The Dalit, or “untouchable,” caste in India makes up an invisible majority of the country’s 1.3 billion people. India Partners’ annual spring benefit banquet – “Touching the Untouchables” – will highlight India Partners’ work among the poorest of the poor in India through music, film and artistic expression. Over a meal of Indian cuisine, guest speaker David Harms will share real-life stories from India’s slums and red-light districts. The event will be held at the Valley River Inn on Saturday, April 21st at 6:30pm.

An interactive Indian bazaar will highlight India Partners’ relief and development projects, alongside a raffle and silent auction with gifts from India and some of the Northwest’s finest hotels and restaurants. A handmade piece of art created by children rescued from the red-light districts of India and living at a rural orphanage will be auctioned live during the event.
