SABA-SC Endorses Marriage Equality


SABA-SC is proud to take a stand on legal matters that affect the South Asian community and the community-at-large. Only a few decades ago, our country unjustly interfered with the South Asian community’s right to immigrate and marry. Between the 1920s and 1965, South Asians were practically banned from immigrating to the US . Furthermore, until 1967 many states had the power to ban interracial marriages, including those involving South Asians. In fact, under one federal statute, US citizens who married non-citizens would automatically lose their citizenship.


In light of these facts, and in an effort to curtail discrimination and promote civil rights, recently SABA-SC joined SABA-NC, APABA-LA, and many other groups in endorsing an amicus brief that furthers a significant constitutional matter – marriage equality for all Americans. The California Supreme Court will consider this issue by early next year.
For a copy of the amicus brief, please contact either of our Co-Presidents Pankit Doshi or Paul Saghera.
