Invitation to sign an open letter

Dear  fellow social psychologists,

Religious minorities, rationalists, and dissident groups in India have been increasingly under attack in recent years! Addressing this, a small group of social psychologists and activists in India and internationally drafted an open letter to the Prime Minister of India. Over the past decades, social psychologists have made several important contributions that address structural inequalities and collective violence in various societies. Join us in sharing this knowledge and advocating for the protection of disadvantaged minorities and dissident groups in India!

In solidarity,
