A Survey of Caste in the United States



Equality Labs is proud to release our reportCaste in the United States. This report came out of a community driven surveyconducted in 2016 and has now emerged as a crucial document that both presentsthe first evidence of Caste discrimination in the US and helps to map theinternal hegemonies within our communities. It also provides insight into howthe South Asian community balances the experiences of living under whitesupremacy while replicating Caste, anti-Dalitness, and anti-Blackness. 


As the South Asian American community, we areuniquely situated to redeem the errors of history as well as set the tone for aprogressive conversation around Caste, both here and in countries of origin.This is an opportunity we must not squander. 


We hope that the data in this report tellsthe stories we haven’t always heard in our communities and inspires intentionalefforts to create spaces that reject harmful and discriminatory ideologies.Instead, we hope this report opens new opportunities for dialogue,accountability, and most of all justice in all of our communities.

My final words of advice to you are educate, agitate and organize; have faith in yourself. With justice on our side I do not see how we can lose our battle. The battle to me is a matter of joy. The battle is in the fullest sense spiritual. There is nothing material or social in it. For ours is a battle not for wealth or for power. It is battle for freedom. It is the battle of reclamation of human personality.
