National Civil Rights Museum says
Valarie Kaur (pronounced “Core”) is a seasoned activist, civil rights lawyer, award-winning filmmaker, media commentator, educator, entrepreneur, and Sikh interfaith leader. Her new venture, the Revolutionary Love Project at the University of Southern California, champions the ethic of love in an era of rage.

For 15 years, Kaur has made award-winning films and led national campaigns for civil rights. Her activism focuses on hate crimes, racism and profiling, gun violence, immigration, solitary confinement, LGBTQI equality, and Internet freedom.

Kaur’s filmography includes the 2008 film Divided We Fall, which is known as the go-to documentary on post-9/11 hate crimes. In 2011 Kaur released Alienation, a short film on immigration and Stigma, a short film about the impact of Stop-and-Frisk. The Worst of the Worst: Portrait of a Supermax, a 2012 documentary on the practice of solitary confinement, helped win policy change in Connecticut. 2012's Oak Creek: In Memorium, a viral short film on the 2012 mass shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin that helped the Sikh community win a historic federal policy change on hate crimes.
