South Asians in the US


SAALT works primarily with the diverse South Asian communities around the United States. Approximately 3.4 million South Asians live in the United States, tracing their backgrounds to Bhutan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, and the diaspora, including Trinidad/Tobago, Guyana, and Africa.

SAALT’s work touches a range of constituencies, including the organizations that are part of the National Coalition of South Asian Organizations, our individual member base, South Asians who are marginalized and disempowered, socially-conscious South Asian activists, students, and professionals, and those seeking to become more engaged with social change efforts in their communities.
