Lift up your voice and tell us your story

Did you know that you can play a role in help­ing to fix our country’s bro­ken immi­gra­tion sys­tem? South Asian Amer­i­cans Lead­ing Togeth­er (SAALT) wants to hear your per­son­al sto­ry. Tell us about your sto­ry or the sto­ry of some­one you know so that oth­ers can see the prob­lems with­in our immi­gra­tion sys­tem. For exam­ple, you can tell a sto­ry about:

  • Sep­a­ra­tion from fam­i­ly mem­bers due to long waits in the immi­gra­tion sys­tem
  • Inabil­i­ty to change or find jobs due to sta­tus
  • Place­ment in deten­tion or removal as a result of pro­fil­ing
  • Dif­fi­cul­ties of being undoc­u­ment­ed

Your story is powerful and you deserve to be heard. SAALT plans to high­light these sto­ries through­out the immi­gra­tion debate to help reform our sys­tem in ways that impact all of us. If select­ed, your sto­ry may be high­light­ed on our blog, in our advo­ca­cy, and in the media.

Please note: pho­tos may be sub­mit­ted, but are option­al.
