By Raja Zahid A Khanazada
Washington: South Asia Democracy Watch (SDW), announcing a new phase of its national and global reach, proudly introduces its new logo which represents its continuous growth and collaborative programs. Founded in 2012 in Dallas, TX, SDW now has a national presence with a branch in Washington DC.
SDW works as a nonprofit organization to monitor and nurture democratic values in South Asia. It achieves its goals by promoting social justice, human rights, and elimination of poverty in the region. It also intends to analyze and communicate the available data and research work to its audience in South Asia and everywhere else in the world.
During the last seven years, SDW has offered international and national events, symposia, and conferences which also include a presentation on gendercide by the world-famous Noble Prize winner Amartya Sen, an international conference on South Asian minorities, and seminars on regional issues, women, democracy and human rights.
By participating in demonstrations, rallies, and issuing statements, the organization has been raising its voice for peace, human rights, democratic values, freedom of expression, and marginalization of the disadvantaged in the region.
This year it will inaugurate the “Asma Jahangir Lecture Series” with events in Dallas and Washington DC to celebrate the legacy of this human rights activist of Pakistan who passed away last year.
