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.
