The South Asian Austin Moms are honored to have Austin's Mayor Steve Adler award the SAAM organization a proclamation that declared April 3, 2016 as Holi for Kids Day! Some of our moms were at the Austin City Hall to accept this proclamation on behalf of the entire organization. Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo gave a brief introduction about the colorful festival of Holi and its significance before presenting SAAM with the proclamation.
SAAM president Pooja Sethi spoke about growing up outside of India without access to the cultural experiences and expressed her gratitude to the Mayor and the City of Austin for recognizing and encouraging a shared celebration of different cultures within the Austin Community.
