South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA)


South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA)  is an independent, national, non-profit organization working to create a more inclusive society by giving voice to South Asian Americans through documenting, preserving, and sharing stories that represent their unique and diverse experiences. SAADA envisions American and world histories that fully acknowledge the importance of immigrants and ethnic communities in the past, strengthen such communities in the present, and inspire discussion about their role in the future. SAADA believes in a broad conception of South Asian America, centered on those in the U.S. who trace their heritage to Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and the many South Asian diaspora communities across the globe. SAADA also believes that diversity is a strength and strives to build archival collections that reflect the vast diversity of South Asian Americans on the basis of national, religious, regional, socio-economic, gender, sexual orientation and cultural identity.
