About this Event

* All proceeds benefit the South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.

Featuring:

• Welcome remarks by board members and notable community members

• Presentation by Samip Mallick, SAADA's Executive Director

• Storytelling by members of the South Asian American community

• Performance by Boston-based song-maker, Anju

• Hors d'oeuvres and wine & beer bar included in admission

***

Since its founding in 2008, SAADA has enabled academics, artists, journalists, students, and community members to write books, create new content, and shape public understanding about the South Asian American community. SAADA is the only organization working nationally to document, preserve, and share stories from the South Asian American community. We work to ensure that the struggles of past and current generations for equality, inclusion, and representation are not the same struggles we leave to our children. Learn more on our website: https://www.saada.org.

Early bird pricing available through end-October.

This event is ADA accessible.
