Help us #TrackHate
SAALT, along, with our allies have been track­ing hate vio­lence against South Asian, Sikh, Mus­lim, and Arab com­mu­ni­ties in the Unit­ed States since Novem­ber 2015.  We are encour­ag­ing indi­vid­u­als to report any acts of hate against our com­mu­ni­ties on our live data­base.

Educate Yourself
SAALT is engaged in nation­al lev­el pol­i­cy advo­ca­cy focused on hate vio­lence, immi­gra­tion, and civ­il rights and lib­er­ties. Explore SAALT’s resources to edu­cate your­self on the poli­cies that impact South Asians in the Unit­ed States.

Words and state­ments mat­ter. Become a Social Media Ambas­sador for SAALT by help­ing us ampli­fy our col­lec­tive voice through shar­ing social media posts on Face­book and Twit­ter and par­tic­i­pat­ing in online cam­paigns.

Learn More about our NCSO Partners
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, col­lec­tives, and vol­un­teer groups in dif­fer­ent regions of the coun­try com­mit­ted to social change. These orga­ni­za­tions are work­ing on the ground to assist South Asians Amer­i­cans who are con­front­ed with a num­ber of bar­ri­ers.   If inter­est­ed in con­nect­ing with a NCSO part­ner in your region con­tact sonia@saalt.org.
