The South Asian Network (SAN) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides culturally and linguistically specific services to and advocacy on behalf of South Asians in Southern California, in the areas of healthcare access, gender-based violence, and civil rights/civic engagement. It was founded in 1990 to provide an open forum for people of South Asian origin to gather and discuss social, economic, and political issues affecting the community, with the goal of raising awareness, engagement and advocacy among community members leading to an empowered and active community.

As the South Asian American community continues to grow, SAN is committed to challenging systems of oppression and inequality, building solidarities with other communities, and achieving economic, political, and human rights of all communities. Their vision is that everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, country of origin, gender, faith, or ability in the South Asian community be able to live a life of dignity, and provide a safe, healthy and financially secure future for themselves and their family.
