Hello, my name is Anushka Kalyan. I live in Northern California, I'm 13, and I'm in 8th grade.
I've always loved Disney movies and I've always enjoyed the way they made me feel immersed in the story. However, most Disney movies portray a Caucasian lead role, which is definitely difficult for me to relate to, being Indian American. Out of all 12 official Disney princesses, only 5 are non-white. This statistic does not show an equal representation of all demographics in America, let alone the world. In a time of worldwide racial movement, I have spoken to my Chinese, Iranian, Ethiopian, and Indian friends about this topic, and they are equally awaiting their fair share of media portrayal by Disney as I am.  I believe a large portion of change starts with the media, like Disney.
I urge you to add your name to this petition so we can create racial equality, which will hopefully spur more acts to include diversity, not only in an ethnic sense, in Disney characters, which will impact generations to come.
