Be the Change is a national day of service on October 1 that is held on campuses and in cities across the country. Each year, South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT) coordinates Be the Change (BTC), an annual national day of service to inspire and foster civic engagement and community building through volunteerism and community service. This year ECAASU: East Coast Asian American Student Union is partnering with SAALT at the national level to promote the campaign. The event is based on Mahatma Gandhi's inspirational quote, "You must be the change you wish to see in the world," and provides opportunities for South Asians and allies to give back to their communities. If your friends, family, colleagues, and peers in other areas of the country would like to make a positive impact in their communities, they can sign up to volunteer at their local site. Register here by September 30 to participate! Local coordinators will follow up with all registrants to confirm details of your service project.
