MISSION

South Asian Network was founded in 1990 to provide an open forum where individuals of South Asian
origin could gather to discuss social, economic, and political issues affecting the community, with the goal
of raising awareness, active involvement and advocacy among community members leading to an informed
and empowered community. The overall goal of SAN is to inform and empower South Asian communities
by acting as an agent of change in eliminating biases, discrimination and injustices targeted against persons
of South Asian origin and by providing linkages amongst communities through shared experiences.

OBJECTIVE
South Asian Network (SAN) is a grassroots, community based organization dedicated to advancing the
health, empowerment and solidarity of persons of South Asian origin in Southern California.


PROJECTS
Outreach: SAN’s outreach efforts are a tool that allows us to build solidarity amongst the various South
Asian communities. The outreach events provide an opportunity for SAN to delineate the South Asian
communities in Southern California. This allows SAN to better serve the community by focusing our
efforts to the locations highly populated by South Asians and tailoring our policy and advocacy efforts to
address specific concerns and issues of the particular community.

Health: SAN is committed to promoting healthy lifestyle behavior and health access for the underserved in
the community. Health and health care access are two major concerns for South Asians. Through the
Community Health Action Initiative (CHAI) which brings together a unique collaboration of public
agencies, community and faith based institutions and a network of South Asian health care providers, SAN
has prioritized the preventive health needs of the community by conducting various targeted interventions
such as workshops, outreach and case management.

Awaz - Voices Against Violence: Awaz is committed to the empowerment of survivors of violence. Awaz
advocates provide a comprehensive spectrum of culturally and linguistically-specific prevention and
intervention services. We address issues of violence within the community through outreach, education,
case management, and advocacy. Awaz advocates have made a concerted effort in establishing visibility of
the quandary of immigrant communities, given that language, cultural barriers and policies impede access
to resources. Toward such an end, Awaz utilizes a public health model to improve service delivery to

                                        SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

survivors of domestic violence through stage-matched case management services. In an effort to encourage
greater participation in violence prevention from the South Asian communities’ religious leaders, youth and
other male members, the unit has provided several trainings, with another domestic violence training to
follow in February, 2008. To date, SAN has assisted 1,140 survivors of violence and their children by
providing case management, legal assistance, shelter placement, and mental health services through
counseling, art workshops and support groups. As such, SAN has served as a forum for survivors of
violence to speak out about their experiences, which serves to mobilize other individuals toward a safe and
healthy life.

Anti Discrimination / Hate Crimes: SAN is committed to challenging societal attitudes, policies, and
institutions that foster inequality. We offer culturally sensitive support and assistance to survivors of hate
crimes and discrimination through case management, counseling, and advocacy. In response to the
backlash of 9-11, so far, SAN has assisted 75 community members dealing with bias motivated issues with
securing protection and appropriate compensation for the survivors and successfully upholding their civil
rights.

Immigration: SAN has engaged in broad based community outreach and education, engaged in
immigration policy advocacy, organized legal clinics and provided community members with appropriate
legal referrals. Moreover since 2003 SAN has continued to assist detainees at the Mira Loma Detention
Facility in Lancaster to ensure that South Asian detainees at the facility have adequate knowledge of theirs
rights, link detainees to appropriate legal counsel and to assess how their family members are coping with
the situation. We have also documented incidents of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) misconduct
in the facility.

Policy Reform and Action: Building upon more than a decade of advocacy work, establishing trust and
credibility within the South Asian community and a deep commitment to social justice, SAN continues to
build its capacity to empower and develop leadership among persons of South Asian origin to speak out on
policy issues that affect their lives and join with other racial/ethnic communities in policy reform actions
and campaigns.

Access to Legal Services: Through partnerships with various public law agencies and attorneys in private
practices, SAN has provided assistance to hundreds of community members in the areas of immigration
and citizenship, government benefits, family law, workers’ rights, and consumer protection.

                               Percival Leha'uli, Project Director

MISSION
To provide much-needed social services to the Tongan community. Virtually all the mainstream agencies
and programs are ill-equipped to serve the Tongan community, which includes a large segment of
monolingual persons unfamiliar with these agencies. This center is the primary agency providing culturally
and linguistically competent services to the Tongan community.

OBJECTIVE
To provide social services, including interpretation and translation, counseling, unemployment and housing
assistance, consumer education, advocacy, and information and referral to the underserved Tongan
community.

SERVICES OFFERED
Treatment Services: Please contact agency for more information..

Prevention Services: Initiated by the Tongan Community Service Center in 1992, the Asian and Pacific
Islander Tobacco Collaborative provides tobacco prevention, education and cessation services under
funding from the LA County DHS/Tobacco Control Program. Based on their success, the project gained
support from the State Department of Health Services/Tobacco Control Section in 1999 to expand efforts in
advocacy, policy change and youth leadership development state-wide.

Other Services: The Center provides free services to alleviate the problems of housing, poverty,
unemployment, and language and cultural barriers in the Tongan community. A need for legal assistance is
intertwined with all other needs facing the Tongan community. Help is required for Tongans seeking to
become legal residents and citizens, since lack of legal status precludes Tongans from procuring
employment training and higher paying jobs. The Tongan Community Services Center uses a variety of
resources to provide support where needed.
