Other South Asian Social Justice and Advocacy


Apna Ghar provides critical, comprehensive, culturally competent services, and conducts outreach and advocacy across communities to end gender-based violence. DFP is an organization made up of South Asians who identify as progressive and want to create a stronger community. Equality Labs works at the intersection of political organizing, community-based participatory research, socially-engaged arts, and digital security. We are building a vision of South Asian American communities centered on the values of South Asian caste and religion-oppressed communities. This centers Adivasis, Dalits, Bahujans, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, and Christians. Jahajee Sisters is a movement-building organization, led by Indo-Caribbean women, committed to creating a safe and equitable society for women and girls. We foster solidarity and empowerment through dialogue, healing, the arts, leadership development and grassroots organizing. As a direct service provider, social change agent and diversity trainer in the mainstream movement to end violence against women, Manavi simultaneously addresses both the immediate needs of women facing abuse and the long-term vision of establishing peaceful communities free from gender-based violence.
  • SAALT - South Asian Americans Leading Together

Sakhi for South Asian Women exists to represent the South Asian diaspora in a survivor-led movement for gender-justice and to honor the collective and inherent power of all survivors of violence. Sakhi is committed to serving survivors through a combination of efforts including—but not limited to—direct services, advocacy and organizing, technical assistance, and community outreach.
  • SAWCC - South Asian Women's Creative Collective
The South Asian Women’s Creative Collective (SAWCC) is a nonprofit arts organization dedicated to the advancement, visibility, and development of emerging and established South Asian women artists and creative professionals by providing a physical and virtual space to profile their creative and intellectual work across disciplines.
