SAALT’s policy advocacy includes a variety of issues that impact South Asian Americans, including racial justice, civic engagement, immigrant rights, post-9/11 backlash, and gender justice. SAALT advocates for policy change on these issues by monitoring policies that affect South Asians, presenting the needs of South Asians in meetings and communications with policymakers, and working in coalition with ally organizations within and outside our community. Additionally, as action by community members is an effective way to influence policymakers, SAALT works to provide tools for South Asian Americans to proactively take action and advocate for the change that benefits and protects our community.
