Be the Change 2010!

June 14, 2010

SAALT has announced that the planning is underway for Be the Change 2010, which will take place on Saturday, October 2nd in cities and on campuses all over the nation.  Some of you may recall that our fearless intern Priyanka participated last year at IU and blogged about her experience here.

Be the Change is a national day of service, coordinated by South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT), that is held on campuses and in cities across the country. The event is based on Mahatma Gandhi’s inspirational quote, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world,” and provides opportunities for South Asians to give back to their communities. In 2009, over 3,000 people contributed 6,000 service hours in 70 cities and campuses across the country…

This year’s theme, “Leading a Movement”, showcases how individuals give back to their communities in the spirit of service and their commitment to creating lasting change beyond Be The Change 2010.  This is an opportunity for South Asians across the United States to engage in collective public service activities that will lead to further civic engagement, collaboration, and unity.
