Donate to bring South Asian culture and current events to UConn Law

Support SALSA to encourage students to be future advocates in the South Asian community

SALSA's Dinner & Movie Night and more!

South Asian Law Students Association (SALSA) Dinner & Movie Night aims to provide an educational and cultural experience to the UConn Law School student body. South Asian Americans in the post-9/11 landscape face issues of race discrimination and hate crimes, issues addressed in the documentary titled "Raising Our Voices: South Asians Respond to Hate Crimes." We hope to bring these and other concerns to light, raising tolerance and fostering discussion amongst audience members.

Donations collected will be used to fund a professional speaker and dinner.

SALSA's Mission Statement:

The South Asian Law Students Association (SALSA) focuses on the needs and goals of students of the South Asian community at UConn Law. SALSA is committed to fostering and encouraging professional excellence among South Asian attorneys and focusing on their relationships with the legal system. SALSA works to instill greater awareness of the role of students as future advocates and leaders in the South Asian community. Members hold cultural events including a tea tasting event and a Diwali/Eid event, promote networking and career opportunities among South Asian attorneys in the community, and participate in events with other various minority and ethnic groups both on and off-campus to promote cultural awareness and ethnic fraternity with the legal profession. Membership is open to all students and all are encouraged to attend meetings and events.

Any additional funds would be used to support SALSA's mission and events dedicated to career development in the legal profession and community service.

The UConn Law Ignite crowdfunding competition provides School of Law students with a platform to fundraise for their favorite causes at the School. Your gift will help teams leverage additional funding through a generous award program comprised of more than $5,000 donated by members of the UConn Law School Foundation Board of Directors. Students are given challenges each week throughout the competition and will be awarded points for winning those challenges.

The UConn Law School Foundation is pleased to partner with the UConn Foundation
to provide this easy online platform to support the Law School.
