SAALT is not a direct engage­ment orga­ni­za­tion, but instead focus­es on cre­at­ing resources that com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers, part­ners, pol­i­cy­mak­ers, fun­ders, and oth­er stake­hold­ers can use to under­stand sys­tems and accord­ing­ly advo­cate for change.

  • Reports: SAALT’s nation­al and region­al reports pro­vide infor­ma­tion and analy­sis around South Asian Amer­i­cans’ demo­graph­ics, orga­ni­za­tions and move­ments, and sociopo­lit­i­cal issues and needs with a focus on con­tem­po­rary events like the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic and the 10th anniver­sary of 9/11.
  • Newslet­ters: SAALT reg­u­lar­ly shares newslet­ters with updates on our pol­i­cy, com­mu­ni­ty mobi­liza­tion, , and part­ner­ships work. Newslet­ters are avail­able to email sub­scribers through this link.
  • Tes­ti­mo­ny & Pol­i­cy Rec­om­men­da­tions: With the sup­port of allies, includ­ing those in the NCSO, SAALT advo­cates for pro­gres­sive pol­i­cy change on Capi­tol Hill by par­tic­i­pat­ing in Con­gres­sion­al and com­mu­ni­ty tes­ti­monies and col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly craft­ing pol­i­cy recommendations.
  • Fact­sheets & Brochures: Through these bite-size doc­u­ments, SAALT makes crit­i­cal infor­ma­tion around key issues (like cit­i­zen­ship and (im)migration, vot­ing rights and vot­er reg­is­tra­tion, jus­tice-cen­tric health and safe­ty, and region­al demo­graph­ics) more acces­si­ble for South Asian Amer­i­cans. Many of these resources are avail­able in South Asian lan­guages, thanks to sup­port from Respond Cri­sis Trans­la­tion and oth­er lan­guage jus­tice part­ners in our network.
  • Train­ings & Webi­na­rs: In vir­tu­al and in-per­son spaces, SAALT engages com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers in dia­logues on issues like com­bat­ting caste suprema­cy, dis­man­tling anti-Black racism, and empow­er­ing anti-colo­nial strug­gles.

  • Mul­ti­me­dia Projects: SAALT also uses mul­ti-media tools, rang­ing from web­sites and inter­ac­tive maps to video inter­views and curat­ed blog posts, to more acces­si­bly engage var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties and com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers in a vari­ety of dialogues.
