As per SWAN’s website, South-Asian Women’s Alliance of Nevada (SWAN), formed to provide more mainstream opportunities for South Asian women to be cultural ambassadors in the community while partaking in civic engagement opportunities. The eight countries that makeup South Asia (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, as well as the Maldives) share many regional similarities that are often left behind in conversations so we hope to collectively elevate our cultures, values, and resources to the larger community through culturally competent programming.
