DRUM: Desis Rising Up and Moving
Vision: DRUM’s long-term vision is to build the power of immigrant workers in the U.S in unity with all workers and communities for human rights. DRUM see’s their movements for justice in the U.S. rooted in working in solidarity with people of the Global South for just global trade, economic, and foreign policies.
Impact: DRUM has mobilized and built the leadership of thousands of low-income, South Asian immigrants to lead social and policy change that impacts their own lives- from immigrant rights to education reform, civil rights, and worker’s justice. DRUM’s membership of over 2,400 people represents the South Asian Diaspora.
