About the Alliance of South Asian American Labor (ASAAL)

The Alliance of South Asian American Labor (ASAAL) seeks to fulfill the dream of those South Asian American Laborers who are struggling to establish their voices to be heard, their issues to be discussed, their courage to be recognized and their leadership to be accepted within the existing labor union movement. ASAAL creates an organization which would educate South Asian American workers; promote political involvement, participation, activism, and voter registration programs among South Asian Americans; and promote training, empowerment and leadership within the labor movement.

ASAAL believes an active and mobilized South Asian American community can become a strategic partner and supporter of the labor movement. ASAAL will pursue the objective of integrating South Asian Americans into the labor movement and political system by being involved in the nonpartisan electoral process.

ASAAL wants to build a movement that would bring all our commitment, strengths, and varied talents to join the unending effort to achieve economic, political, and social justice for every worker and every American.
