In response to the rising communalization of South Asian societies, the Alliance for a Secular and Democratic South Asia was formed in January 1993.

The Alliance is made up of concerned individuals in the Boston area. It represents many South Asian countries as well as people of South Asian descent in the USA. Since its conception it has consistently sought to spread awareness about the challenges against secularism and democracy in South Asia. It has also always expressed solidarity with other movements against injustice and oppression. Events organized by the Alliance include film screenings, talks, cultural programs, vigils and rallies.

In coalition with other progressive groups in the Boston Area, the Alliance offers an open platform to all for participation in creative solutions to the challenges facing our people. We meet every week to debate, organize and plan. Please contact us at info@SouthAsiaAlliance.org for more information.
