On February 14, 2011, Rev. Peter Morales, President of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), embarked upon a two-week journey to India to visit with several partners of the Unitarian Universalist Holdeen India Program (UUHIP) and with leaders of the Unitarian Union of North East India (UUNEI). In a blog posted on the UUA website, Rev. Morales reflected upon his visit to the Dalit Shakti Kendra, his interaction with DSK founder Martin Macwan, students and teachers. His interaction found that those involved in training were were “smiling, proud, confident, joyful”.
