Mission Statement


F ounded in 2000, South Asian American Leaders of Tomorrow (SAALT) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring the full and equal participation by South Asians in the civic and political life of the United States. There are approximately 2 million South Asians in the United States today. South Asians trace their descent to Bhutan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, and the diaspora including the West Indies, Africa and Europe. SAALT's goals are to:

  • Provide a uniform and informed voice on issues affecting South Asians that relate to equality and civil rights
  • Develop South Asian Coalitions that transcend religious, ethnic, or linguistic differences, to facilitate collective action and broader community change
  • Create opportunities for leadership, service, and volunteerism by South Asians in order to foster civic engagement

Our work is rooted in collaborative relationships and coalitions with organizations and individuals.
