Valarie Kaur

Welcoming With Revolutionary Love

Wednesday, March 9, 2022



We invite you to join us for a conversation with Valarie Kaur and MTS Head of School Andrew Davis on Wednesday, March 9. Light bites will be provided starting at 6:30 PM, and the speaker will begin at 7:00 PM. This event is free and open to the public. (Masks will be required.) 

Ensuring that all of our community members are not just invited to MTS, but WELCOMED, is a focus at Mount Tamalpais School. We are thrilled that Valarie Kaur, founder and leader of the Revolutionary Love Project, will share her vision and wisdom with us. Valarie founded the Revolutionary Love Project in order to reclaim love as a force of justice. She sees revolutionary love as the call of our times and has a vision to plant "seeds" of revolutionary love across the country and around the world. Her goal? To create a critical mass of people building beloved community – anti-racist, equitable, and sustainable. Come to MTS to hear Valarie speak to us about how to get started.

Valarie Kaur is a renowned American activist, documentary filmmaker, civil rights lawyer, and educator. She is the founder of the Revolutionary Love Project, as well as the author of "See No Stranger" – A Memoir and Manifesto of Revolutionary Love in June 2020. Valarie's vision of "Revolutionary Love" is deeply rooted in her Sikh faith. She grew up on the farmlands of California, where her family has lived as Punjabi Sikh farmers for more than a century. As a child, whenever she felt lost, her grandfather would give her Sikh wisdom through song and point to the path of the sant-sipahi, sage-warrior. The sage loves; the warrior fights – it's a path of revolutionary love. Kaur earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religious Studies and International Relations from Stanford University, a Master of Arts in Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School, and a Juris Doctor from Yale Law School.
