South Asian Network (SAN) is a grassroots, community based organization dedicated to advancing the health, empowerment and solidarity of persons of South Asian origin in Southern California. Founded in 1990, the overall goal of SAN is to inform and empower South Asian communities by acting as an agent of change in eliminating biases, discrimination and injustices targeted against persons of South Asian origin and by providing linkages amongst communities through shared experiences. Fundamental to our mission is equality for all people
On August 20th, over 150 South Asian American community members and supporters gathered at the Artesia Community Center to reflect on the passing of a decade since the tragedy on September 11th, 2001. While the nation mourns the upcoming anniversary, community members and SAN met to mourn the local loss in South Asian, Arab, Muslim and Sikh communities in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
