Art by Khushboo Kataria Gulati
South Asians across the United States must organize ourselves to amplify the demands of the Movement for Black Lives. Join national South Asian organizations to discuss how to organize our community associations, businesses, families, and religious institutions to divest from policing, push for anti-racist policies, and practice intra-racial solidarity that builds safer communities.
Zoé Samudzi is a writer, photographer, and sociology doctoral candidate at the University of California – San Francisco. She is a Black abolitionist, Buddhist, and Ambedkarite.
