SAALT is entering a period of chrysalis just like in nature when an organism undergoes deep change and transformation. We are committing the next 18 months to building a foundational analysis of our South Asianness on the basis of caste. We will be transitioning to a four-person leadership model of co-stewardship. In this year and a half, we will cease all external programming and focus on internal political education and develop values aligned organizational practices and infrastructure. This period will feed our ultimate purpose: to build South Asian people power that is unapologetically anti-caste and upholding of gender, economic, racial, disability, and environmental justice in organizing, art, culture, advocacy, and policy.
