ABOUT THE NCSO: The nation's first coalition of South Asian organizations will launch its national policy and action agenda and collaborative projects on June 24th, 2008 in New York City at 12:30PM EST. The National Coalition of South Asian Organizations (NCSO) is comprised of 29 organizations that empower South Asian communities in 12 metropolitan areas around the United States through social service provision, community education, advocacy and organizing.

Over 2.7 million South Asians live in the United States today and face a range of issues and concerns. The NCSO's formation, collaborative projects, and release of a national policy and action agenda will increase civic engagement by the community and contribute to positive policy change that can benefit South Asians and all individuals in the United States. With the 2008 Elections on the horizon, the national policy and action agenda will highlight many of the issues facing South Asian communities in the United States.
