Dalit Month is observed globally in April by followers of BR Ambedkar, a Dalit icon and the architect of the Constitution of India. The government of British Columbia said that it was observing the month to acknowledge and fight against discrimination spurred by discrimination and racism against people of color and indigenous people and to bring about justice and equality for all.

“April is a significant month for Dalit communities and it includes the birth and death anniversaries of important Dalit leaders and social reformers in the movement against systemic discrimination based on castes, such as BR Ambedkar, Jyotirao Phule, Mangu Ram Mugowalia, and Sant Ram Udasi , the government said.
