List of Activities
 
Our Focus
Youth Empowerment
A third of Pakistani Americans are under the age of 17. The USPAK Foundation is focused on youth education, community integration, volunteerism, cultural heritage, and leadership development. We will help our youth engage key opinion-makers and facilitate meaningful dialogue for effective change.
Public Engagement
The USPAK Foundation believes it is our civic responsibility to vote, work with elected officials, and get involved in the domestic democratic process. Knowing our rights is essential to safeguarding them. Issues such as bullying, discrimination in the workplace, and racial profiling can be dealt with more effectively if we have a history of being leaders and volunteers in our communities.
Religious Freedom
The Foundation supports religious freedom within the United States and recognizes it as a fundamental principle of this nation.
Media Relations
Pakistani Americans need to communicate effectively using new tools with the media, respond to negative views, and develop a media presence.
Women’s Rights
USPAK Foundation will focus on issues such as social assimilation programs and disseminating educational materials to allow Pakistani American women to know their rights.
