South Asian Youth in Houston Unite (SAYHU) is a transnational feminist collective that empowers young South Asian Houstonians by creating spaces where they can engage with, learn, and effectively respond to complex social issues that impact our communities. Our programming centers issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, religion, caste, ethnicity, and other intersections of identity.
Together, we seek to increase political engagement and visibility among South Asian youth in Houston, and promote social justice within our multiracial community network. Our approach to learning, teaching and advocating for social justice and civic engagement makes space for diverse South Asian experiences.
Through community gatherings, an annual Summer Institute, a regional summit, and a digital archive, we are establishing a social justice-minded South Asian network in Houston. We seek to document and archive the many experiences and histories of South Asians in Texas.
