National South Asian Summit 2017

The National South Asian Summit 2017 will convene hundreds of South Asian organizations, advocates, and allies from across the U.S. on April 21-24, 2017 in Washington, D.C.  The 2017 Summit will be the 10-year anniversary for this epic gathering, and will provide an opportunity to build skills that will deepen your organization’s work and your individual leadership, connect with government officials and congressional offices, expand your networks, and strategize with diverse leaders, advocates, and allies to demand justice, create change, and claim your power through collective action.

This year’s theme is in response to the rise in hate violence, xenophobic rhetoric, and anti-immigrant sentiment that have escalated to unprecedented levels.  These challenges facing our communities continue to grow.  In response, our communities must be United for Action.

Join us to be united in action!
