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. To schedule a smaller training or webinar with SAALT, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- 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.
