SUS was established to works for the equality, justice, rights, and development of discriminated and marginalized people like Dalit, women, landless squatters and minority groups. Therefore, it particularly advocates to end discrimination based on caste and gender, enhance access to land and citizenship certificate, promote social justice and ensure effective participation of right holders in governance. SUS advocacy strategies aim to empower rights holders to claim their rights, and actually use their power to effectively participate in decision-making processes at all levels. It raises mass awareness against bad social norms and practices, and foster respect for social diversity. SUS capacity building initiatives impart advocacy knowledge and skills to local leaders and activists and enable enforcement agencies to work together fighting against social problems. SUS emphasizes evidence-based advocacy. It invests in issue-based knowledge production and disseminates knowledge to wider actors internally and externally. The efforts for alliance building and collaboration with stakeholders build solidity and accumulate power to influence policy and decisions. SUS also supports the struggle of rights holders and facilitates their advocacy for inclusive policies and equitable access to public services and justice.
