"My mission is to create a space where people can learn something and leave feeling empowered."

A NOTE FROM PADMA
I strive to do this through my work with organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) as Artist Ambassador for immigrants’ rights and women’s rights to co-founding the Endometriosis Foundation of America (EndoFound) to help fight the stigma of chronic pain.
I want to inspire people from all corners of the world to be vocal and active agents for social change.
Padma is honored to be an ambassador for...
The ACLU dares to create a more perfect union — beyond one person, party, or side. Our mission is to realize this promise of the United States Constitution for all and expand the reach of its guarantees.
