Jasveen Bindra (India)


Jasveen Bindra (Vikalp Women’s Group): Jasveen earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Delhi, where she wrote a thesis on religious violence and state-sponsored repression in India. She also worked on legislative research on social rights issues for an Indian Member of Parliament, and interned with the United Nations Environment Programme. Jasveen was pursuing a Masters degree in Conflict Resolution at Georgetown University when she undertook her AP fellowship. After her fellowship, she wrote: "Before embarking on this project, I wasn’t quite prepared for the challenges it would entail, nor the Huckleberry-esque adventures. In six crazy days, spanning over four crazier weeks, we learned a lot more than how to make an advocacy quilt."
