Thanks for visiting my website! If you’d like to receive an occasional email about the issues dear to my heart – racial justice and South Asian and Asian American communities – please complete the form below.
I’m a South Asian American woman, who was born in India and who immigrated to Kentucky when I was 12 . I’m an activist and advocate who has supported racial and immigrant justice movements for 15 years, most recently as the executive director of South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT) and now as Senior Fellow at the Center for Social Inclusion (CSI). Please visit the “About Deepa” link to learn more and to connect with me.
About this Website:
This website is a contribution to the body of practices, ideas, and resources that can help us shape and navigate inclusive and multiracial communities in America’s quickly transforming racial landscape. Much of the website’s information for the time being will be devoted to my new book, We Too Sing America: South Asian, Muslim, Arab and Sikh Immigrants Shape Our Multiracial Future, forthcoming from The New Press in November 2015.
Please look around the site to learn about how you can join the We Too Sing America book tour, get involved with race talks in schools, communities and campuses, and if you are interested, please peruse the archives for many of my reflections and musings on everything from Bobby Jindal to the National Spelling Bee.
Thank you for visiting! I hope to see you on the We Too Sing America book tour and to be in dialogue about how we can lift up experiences, voices, stories, and best practices for building more inclusive and multiracial communities in America.
