Civil rights

Here's a story about how members of the Changemakers community are fighting for the rights of waste collectors in India:

Milind Ranade is cleaning up the working conditions of unskilled laborers in Indian cities. Through the revolutionary labor union he founded, Kachra Vahtuk Sanghash Samiti (KVSS), or the “Waste Collectors and Transporters Union,” Ranade is challenging corruption, and championing the untouchable waste collectors who have been neglected by India's mainstream labor organizations.

These workers’ conditions changed Milind Ranade's life. One day while riding a local bus, he noticed a man who was eating while sitting on top of a passing garbage truck. Shock and fascination led Ranade and two friends to follow the truck to the Shivajinagar dumping ground.
