SAKHI for South Asian Women
Sakhi for South Asian Women exists to represent the South Asian diaspora in a survivor-led movement for gender-justice and to honor the collective and inherent power of all survivors of violence. Sakhi is committed to serving survivors through a combination of efforts including—but not limited to—direct services, advocacy and organizing, technical assistance, and community outreach.
As a organization that was founded to empower our community, we stand in solidarity with our black brothers and sisters in demanding an end to police brutality and systemic oppression. We demand swift justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the countless black lives taken away from us by white supremacy in America. We demand accountability for all perpetrators of anti-black violence and swift police reform. We call for an end to institutionalized racism and for the protection of our right to peacefully protest it.
As immigrant and minority New Yorkers, we recognize just how much the Civil Rights Movement has contributed to the Immigration Act of 1965 which has afforded us the rights we enjoy today. It’s our responsibility to actively fight racism in our community.
Over the past five years our organization has ramped up our efforts to support black youth by providing opportunity scholarships, providing free workshops, and through our partnerships with community organizations such as Dreamchasers, The Brooklyn Tech Alumni Foundation STEM Pipeline, and Kings Against Violence Initiative. We are committed to providing educational access and fighting for equity.
In order to make change, everyone has to do their part. Here are some ways you can support the movement and demand justice.
- Learn about the movement.
- Sign petitions calling for action.
- Donate to the movement and bail funds.
- Call, write, and visit your elected officials.

- Use your platform to amplify the voices of the black community.
- Have important conversations with your friends and family.
- If you are privileged, please acknowledge it, use it to help the movement, and adopt a mindset which calls for equity and inclusion.
