South Asian Network

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: December 18, 2014, 1:50 AM

Description

South Asian Network was founded in 1990 to provide an open forum for people of South Asian origin to gather and discuss social, economic, and political issues affecting the community, with the goal of raising awareness, engagement and advocacy among community members leading to an empowered and active community.

As the South Asian American community continues to grow, SAN is committed to challenging systems of oppression and inequality, building solidarities with other communities, and achieving economic, political, and human rights of all communities.

SAN embraces the diversity of the South Asian American community as strength and builds unity among South Asian immigrants in Southern California that does not exist in South Asia itself. SAN strives to build alliances among the South Asian community, other immigrant communities, and communities of color in order to advance a shared progressive agenda for Southern California.

The board, staff and volunteers are the most diverse and representative of any South Asian organization. Comprised of a majority of women, the team includes persons of Bangladeshi, Indian, Nepalese, Pakistani and Sri Lankan origin from Buddhist, Hindu, Jain, Christian, Muslim and Sikh traditions; first generation immigrants and first generation U.S. born; speakers of Bengali, Fiji Hindi, Gujarati, Hindi, Nepali, Punjabi, Singhalese, Tamil and Urdu; and queer and straight members. Our internal diversity enables us reach our diverse communities.
