The State of South Asian American Influence & Power in Illinois

By the end of 2018, the South Asian American community in Illinois will have doubled its representation in federal and state government. We have quadrupled the number of candidates who ran for office this past spring. South Asian Americans in Illinois at a population of 280,125 are poised in certain townships and cities to increase their influence through civic participation.
What will it take to engage South Asian Americans and unleash their full potential to improve and transform their own communities and the larger society?

Join us for SAAPRI’s fall fundraiser in Evanston, IL, where we will explore South Asian American power in our communities through a discussion with key panelists and share SAAPRI’s latest projects. Refreshments will be served. Space is limited.
