The Conference

South Asian Youth Initiative

Formerly known as the South Asian Millennials Conference, we have rebranded to the South Asian Youth Initiative in order to include high schoolers and graduate students. 

Our Purpose

Our initiative aims to create community amongst young South Asians and South Asian-Americans from all over the US while also serving as a forum for activism, discussion, and solidarity. 

What We Offer

We are organizing a series of workshops (on topics such as grassroots organizing strategy, mental health, gender violence), panel discussions, affinity groups, break out sessions, performances, mentorship events, and a speaker series. 

Theme for SAYI 2021

 The theme of SAYI 2021 is "Solidarity, Resistance, and Radical Organizing," as a guiding principle in conference planning and preparation.
