Identities

Many marginalised identities, such a women, sex workers, Denotified and Nomadic Tribes (DNT), women, transgenders, migrant and daily wage workers, who were already struggling for access to basic rights and needs for sustenance have been further pushed to the margins during COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown, The lack of documentation, low literacy rates, high unemployment and the absence of job security riddled with stigmatisation and criminalisation have meant that these identities have been the last to benefit from any kind of welfare scheme.

In an attempt to bring forth and document the voices of those worst affected, some webinars in the series have had a particular focus on these identities from across the country.
