SUJAAGRising Together 

(Collective Awakening) 

Welcome to SUJAAG! Hindi wordSujaag means collective awareness or awakening.

SUJAAG is an initiative that began in an effort to build a better community, one where we not only survive the various factors impacting us and our lives, but thrive together and create a more welcoming and compassionate community for our future generations.

Our mission is to bring difficult conversations to the forefront so every person in the community feels safe to voice their concerns and challenges. We aim to bring in everyday people as well as experts to shed light on a variety of topics and have candid discussions so we can all grow and learn from each other. 

Our interactive in-person events typically have expert panelists, an engaging audience and Q & A at the end of every session. 

The events will be open to all and FREE to attend and we urge you to share this very important and timely initiative with your friends and family.

In July 2021, we lost a sweet 14-year-old boy, Shiv Kulkarni to mental illness. Shiv was a brilliant young teen who identified as gay and struggled with feeling accepted amongst his peers and community. This incident hit close to home and shook u

s to our core. While Shiv is no longer with us, he left a strong legacy behind, reminding us to focus on the power of a community where everyone feels welcome and safe.

Inspired by this incident, we realized that we need to have open conversations within our community on various topics that are not typically discussed. We hope to create a supportive and inclusive community by exchanging ideas and sharing resources.
