Hosted by SAALT

Join South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT), the National Coalition of South Asian Organizations, and other partner and ally organizations for a rally and march demanding justice for communities. SAALT envisions a world free of policy and rhetoric driven by hate. They demand immigrant justice, civil rights, and racial justice for all. They march for the more than 450,000 undocumented South Asians who have been maligned and terrorized by the current political climate, for the more than 200 members of our community across the country who experienced incidents of hate during the 2016 presidential election cycle. They march for Deep Rai, Srinivas Kuchibhotla, Harnish Patel, and the communities that fear for their physical safety in a climate of rising intolerance. They march in support of our National Coalition of South Asian Organizations (NCSO) and the vital frontline work they do every day. They march for just law enforcement practices, against discriminatory registries, bans, and raids, and against the compounded impact of violence on South Asian women and queer folks. They march for all those fighting for a socially just United States, one that extends full inclusion, dignity, safety, and welfare for its immigrant communities, and demand the support of policymakers toward that vision.
