Recap: SAAN Conference
JANUARY 22, 2014Last weekend I had the privilege of delivering a keynote address at the 12th annual SAAN undergraduate student conference at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. SAAN (South Asian Awareness Network) aims to increase awareness of issues salient to South Asian communities, encourage its participants to engage thoughtfully with their surroundings and promote innovative solutions to issues of social justice. It is one of the largest undergraduate South Asian American student conference in the country.
From Chicago to the White House
NOVEMBER 7, 2013We started SAADA in 2008 because we recognized that stories from South Asian American communities were in danger of being forgotten by history. Today, our freely-accessible digital archive contains nearly 1,500 items reflecting the diversity of South Asian American experiences. Back in 2008, we could never have imagined that we would come this far.
