Chhaya examines the housing and community development needs of South Asian Americans in New York City in a post 9/11 climate.
South Asian Americans — immigrants and their children from the regions and border areas of Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, as well as the diaspora from the Caribbean and other areas — make up the second largest Asian immigrant community in the city. This community is also one of the fastest growing new immigrant populations with urgent needs in the areas of housing, immigration and economic development. Chhaya was established in October of 2000 as an affiliate of Asian Americans for Equality (AAFE), a 28-year-old leading community development organization serving Asian American populations in New York. The events following the tragedy of World Trade Center highlights the need for the South Asian community to come together as a strong voice against racism that has lead to the unfair victimization and even death of innocent people from the community.
