Elections Campaigns: South Asian Vote!

SAALT engages in cam­paigns around the coun­try. This past fall, SAALT launched an elec­tion cam­paign that sought to engage South Asians around vot­er rights, the elec­tion process and how to get involved. The cam­paign focused on areas of the coun­try with high-den­si­ty South Asian pop­u­la­tions. Vot­er edu­ca­tion­al mate­ri­als were trans­lat­ed into sev­en South Asian lan­guages, includ­ing Ben­gali, Gujarati, Urdu, Hin­di, Nepali, and Tamil. Take a look at some of our vot­er edu­ca­tion­al mate­ri­als:

 

An America for All of Us

SAALT also mobi­lized com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers around the tenth anniver­sary of 9/11, in the An Amer­i­ca for All of Us cam­paign.

About the Campaign
The Amer­i­ca for All of Us cam­paign engaged com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers to reflect upon 9/11 the loss of life on that day, and the events that have tran­spired since then. In the decade fol­low­ing 9/11, many com­mu­ni­ties who call Amer­i­ca home have been affect­ed by unfair poli­cies and xeno­pho­bic rhetoric. The cam­paign called upon peo­ple to work togeth­er to ensure that our coun­try is true to the fun­da­men­tal ideals of fair­ness, diver­si­ty and equal­i­ty, and that we live in.

An Amer­i­ca for All of Us was an ini­tia­tive of South Asian Amer­i­cans Lead­ing Togeth­er (SAALT) in part­ner­ship with mem­bers of the Nation­al Coali­tion of South Asian Orga­ni­za­tions and ally orga­ni­za­tions. The cam­paign marked the 10-year anniver­sary of Sep­tem­ber 11 through doc­u­men­ta­tion, pol­i­cy ini­tia­tives, and com­mu­ni­ty mobi­liza­tion.
