As an Indian diaspora community, we stand in solidarity with Black Americans and work to disrupt anti-Black racism through:
I. Advocating for the health and safety of Black Lives.
II. Uplifting Black Voices and Stories.
III. Educating our own community.
As a community, we acknowledge the privileges and benefits we have experience from the centuries of struggle and fight for racial equality led by African American people. As direct beneficiaries of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, we feel a responsibility to build an anti-racist community that is committed to combating individual, interpersonal, and systemic anti-Black racism.

As allies in the Black Lives Matter movement, we pledge to advocate for the Black community by supporting policy reform and social activism. We aim to empower community members to push for change in their spheres of influence and encourage members to be active participants in civic reform.
As Malayalee Americans we are direct beneficiaries of the legacy of freedom created by Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) in the United States. We commit to harnessing our unique economic, educational, and social privilege to amplify marginalized voices and advance the Black community.
Education is foundational to becoming an effective change agent in this movement. We aim to equip our community with factual information and the tools necessary to actively support, uplift, and advocate for Black Americans. We commit to creating programs that will stimulate the learning & growth required to develop ourselves into an anti-racist community.
