Desis Rising Up and Moving (DRUM)
Desis Rising Up and Moving (DRUM) has mobilized and built the leadership of thousands of low-income, South Asian immigrants to lead social and policy change that impacts their own lives- from immigrant rights to education reform, civil rights, and workers justice. DRUM movement for justice is rooted in building strong cross-community alliances locally and nationally.
In December 2016, DRUM leadership and alliance-building led to the Department of Homeland Security formerly eliminating the regulations that formed the basis of the NSEERS (National Security Entry-Exit Registration System) or Special Registrations program which devastated communities.
