Policy advocacy is challenging and complex task, particularly for those with limited access to power and resources. Therefore, Samata Media Center-SMC conducts series of actions to influence people,policies, structures and system to advance equality, social justice and respect for human rights of Dalit in Nepal. The new constitution of Nepal has acknowledged caste discrimination as a serious social crime and protected Dalit rights under fundamental rights section. Other legislations are also in place to this end.
