Celebrating 5 Years! Take One!

From Aparna Kothary, our former Development and Fundraising VISTA (2007-2009):

“I started working at SAALT right after college and it served as my introduction to both the South Asian community and the broader social justice movement. Along the way I met passionate individuals who continue to inspire me to remain engaged in this community, the non-profit sector, and the movement. I see SAALT continuing to serve as a hub for the Souh Asian community through the NCSO, local capacity-building, and policy work. It is also my hope that support from the community increases over the next five years through membership and involvement.”

From Priya Murthy, our Policy Director:

“I first got involved with SAALT almost four years ago as part of the Be the Change national day of service. Handing out know your rights brochures to taxi cab drivers at Union Station in Washington, DC, I knew that this was a progressive South Asian organization that I wanted to be a part of. Over the past few years, SAALT has made a tremendous impact on my life. It has meant connecting with a diverse and strong South Asian community as we advocate for policy change. It has meant being inspired by the tireless work that local organizations and community leaders do everyday. It has meant working with fierce allies from other communities as we strive for immigrant and civil rights. As our community grows in the next five years (as I’m sure it will!), I am excited to see where SAALT will go in working with the community and fostering a space for South Asian empowerment.”
