Understand Our New Approach to #TrackingHate
We are mov­ing SAALT away from sup­port­ing fed­er­al hate vio­lence leg­is­la­tion, which his­tor­i­cal­ly has increased fund­ing for law enforce­ment by assum­ing that bet­ter report­ing of hate vio­lence is the solu­tion. This is also often framed as a sur­vivor-cen­tered approach, with­out more deeply exam­in­ing the range and access to the options sur­vivors have to redress harm. As a result, con­ver­sa­tions about trans­for­ma­tive jus­tice (TJ) as a non-carcer­al alter­na­tive remain shal­low and large­ly under­in­vest­ed because puni­tive leg­is­la­tion is mod­eled as the norm by Amer­i­can sys­tems and institutions.

Educate Yourself On Our Shift in Policy Engagement
His­tor­i­cal­ly, SAALT has engaged in nation­al lev­el pol­i­cy advo­ca­cy focused on hate vio­lence, immi­gra­tion, and civ­il rights and lib­er­ties, and pro­duced resources to edu­cate com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers on the poli­cies that impact South Asians in the Unit­ed States. In 2022, SAALT is shift­ing this rela­tion­ship, as part of our strength­ened com­mit­ment to struc­tur­al change.

South Asian com­mu­ni­ties in the Unit­ed States have a range of needs and con­cerns.  The Nation­al Coali­tion of South Asian Orga­ni­za­tions (NCSO) is made up of over 50 non­prof­its com­mit­ted to work­ing togeth­er to man­i­fest trans­for­ma­tive change.
