Coordinators: Sharmin Hossain, Thenmozhi Soundararajan, Monica Mohapatra, and Aliya Rahman

This gathering from June 25-26, 2020 is for South Asian and Indo-Carribean organizers who mobilize around equity for our community. We are building a political home for South Asians who are allied in the fight against religious fundamentalism and fascism in our Diaspora. From battles against caste, immigration, religious extremism, and gender-based violence, we know what we are against, but we have not had enough time to think about what we are for. Attendants of this gathering will be learning about base building, campaign strategy, with an opportunity to lead and build South Asian power-building chapters across the country.
Equality Labs is a national organization centered on the rights of South Asian caste, queer, and religious oppressed minorities. We work at the intersection of political organizing, community-based participatory research, socially engaged arts, and digital security. Learn more at:
