Another set of reflections about the 5 year anniversary of SAALT opening its first staffer office. Now we’re hearing from Imrana Khera, SAALT’s Program Manager from 2004–2005.
“SAALT represents the very diverse South Asian community living in the United States, a challenging job for any organization. SAALT pushes our community forward by advocating for change within a social justice framework. SAALT’s strength is its respectful and effective collaboration with organizations that are working with South Asian community at a local level across the country.
My expectation is that SAALT will continue to grow over the next five years and continue to effect change on behalf of our community — through education, policy, and research — like the award-winning Raising Our Voices DVD, through SAALT townhalls/community forums, and reports like Washington DeSi: South Asians in the Nation’s Capital (July 2009) .”
