South Asian American Progressive Organizing in the Bay Area

A reflection on South Asian American organizing in the Bay Area authored by Sunaina Maira, Madihah Akhter, and Sabiha Basrai on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. The paper highlights the many changes and challenges that Muslim and South Asian American communities have experienced, and, continue to experience in the two decades since 9/11. It also shines a light on the multiple ways in which these communities have responded resiliently, against racism, Islamophobia, and xenophobia.
