NEW VIDEO: Survivors Speak Up

(Fremont, CA) As an Ensaaf supporter, we want you to be among the first to view "Cascade of Voices," our powerful new advocacy video produced by our partner, the New Media Advocacy Project.

Kashmir Singh told us: "My case has been highlighted before, but I'm asking you to bring even more attention to it. So that the government hears our voices … I'm asking you to tell this story to the world." Today we are asking you to heed Kashmir Singh's call by watching the video and making a gift to help us continue documenting the abuses in Punjab. Double your impact today: a philanthropist will match every dollar we raise!

Kashmir Singh's son, Harjit Singh, was just one of the thousands of people disappeared or unlawfully killed by Indian security forces between 1984 and 1995. Decades later, survivors are still speaking up for their children, husbands, and wives. "Cascade of Voices" showcases their determination to learn the true fate of their loved ones, as well as the continuing emotional and financial impact these abuses have had on families.

Thank you for your support!

P.S. Please help tell Kashmir Singh's story to the world by sharing the video with your friends. And while you're at it, become our Facebook fan and join our campaign to Challenge the Darkness! We're trying to reach 2,059 fans—the number of secret cremations recognized by the Indian government based on Jaswant Singh Khalra's work.
