About Us


NACDAOR is the national platform for more than 2200 Dalit Adivasi organisations spread across 23 states of India. Centre for Alternative Dalit Media ( CADAM) acts as the secretariat of this national platform. CADAM came up as a response to the caste-bias reflected in the mainstream media during the Anti-Mandal Commission Report agitations. To break the isolation of Dalit organizations, CADAM organized a national conference of Dalit organizations from all over the country in the year 2001, which gave birth to the National Confederation of Dalit Organisations (NACDOR)
