Tell Governor Brown to Sign SB1540 for Sikh Awareness

SB1540 would authorize the State Board of Education to complete the revision process of the History-Social Science Framework for California schools. This draft framework currently includes information about Sikhs in seven distinct areas. When completed, this framework will ensure that California students learn about Sikhism and Sikh contributions, thereby increasing appreciation for diversity and reducing ignorance of the sort that leads to bullying and bias.

Please sign this petition if you are a California resident only.

Dear Governor Brown,

As your constituent, I urge you to support SB 1540 (Hancock). This bill authorizes the State Board of Education to complete the revision process of the History-Social Science Framework for California schools.

This would be an important step for the California Sikh community, because the draft framework currently includes information about Sikhs in seven distinct areas. When completed, this framework will ensure that California students learn about Sikhism and Sikh contributions, thereby increasing appreciation for diversity and reducing ignorance of the sort that leads to bullying and bias.

I therefore request that you sign SB1540 and offer gratitude for your consideration.
