PEARL hosted a series of reading groups for Tamil youth and young professionals in Toronto. The reading groups are aimed at helping Tamil activists explore their Tamil identity, history, and politics through discussion of key readings, in a safe space that acknowledges intersecting structures such as gender and caste. The aim of the reading groups is to develop the critical analysis and leadership capabilities of young Tamil activists.
Conferences & Workshops
PEARL often participates in and helps coordinate conferences on the Tamil polity, including the key human rights concerns in the North-East. Our contributions include panel presentations, keynotes, and other support work. In addition, we often host independent public workshops and discussions on key issues.
