Nominations

Mala Desai, Nominated during the Asian American Art Alliances Locating the Sacred Festival

A small charitable social and cultural services organization created in 1994 to empower South Asian women for economic independence. It is currently in a very convenient location. Any change will reduce the support Pragati has received from the local community that has contributed to its sustenance and continuation despite severe loss of funding.
