How is immigration viewed in America, and what are the different challenges faced by South Asian immigrant communities, specifically? Issues faced by the South Asian communities in the US can be analyzed under two major arcs: one, as problems created due to existing societal attitudes in the United States, and two, those which are a direct byproduct of the clash of two cultures. This phenomenon is examined through the narratives of a few members of the South Asian Workers’ Center (SAWC). Communities are very important in every society, and it becomes even more crucial within ethnic immigrant communities. As a result, the SAWC works to empower those facing the many challenges by organizing the community and thereby, help them identify, articulate and advocate in their voices, voices which are often been silenced or have remained unheard. It is best illustrated through the use of personal narratives and stories.
