Welcome to the Philadelphia South Asian Collective.
Philadelphia South Asian Collective is building towards an oppression-free Philadelphia by dismantling all supremacist power structures within its own diasporic communities, in solidarity with allies, everywhere.
PSAC is an anti-hierarchical diasporic group that initiates and supports campaigns in the Philadelphia area. We inform, empower, organize, and advocate for our values, while de-centering our own privileges and prejudices. The continued growth and success of our movement is centered upon self-determination of historically and currently marginalized groups.
The work of PSAC is guided by our commitment to:
Nurture an inclusive space centering historically marginalized voices
Build and strengthen relationships with people, organizations and communities through genuine understanding and authentic compassion
Hold ourselves and each other accountable to understand how we have internalized systemic violence and how that is impacting others; work together to reduce and eliminate that harm
Pursue revolutionary justice rooted in the intersectionality of our lived experiences
