Shree Mulay on Organizing by South Asians in Canada in the 1970s

In this seven-minute audio clip, Shree Mulay talks about a strand of organizing among South Asian people in North America in the 1970s, particularly through the founding and work of the Indian People’s Association of North America. It initially formed largely among progressive graduates of the Indian Institutes of Technology who had moved to North America, and was initially mostly involved in responding to the National Emergency declared by the government of Indira Gandhi and the corresponding attack on civil liberties in India. After the National Emergency was lifted, its members turned their attention towards supporting South Asian immigrants to North America in a variety of ways, and a number of organizations that came from those efforts continue to do important work today.
