On May 24, 2011, the Sikh Coalition’s Director of Law and Policy spoke by invitation at a policy briefing on Capitol Hill organized by the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC
). Our discussion focused on the need to promote legislation that protects individuals from workplace discrimination, school bullying, and racial profiling. Earlier in May, the Sikh Coalition testified by invitation at a separate hearing before the United States Commission on Civil Rights, a federal agency. Click here to watch a video
of the hearing, which discusses the problem of school bullying in our nation’s public schools.
The Sikh Coalition will continue to fight for a safe and healthy learning environment for all children in the United States. As always, we urge Sikhs everywhere to fearlessly maintain their articles of faith. If you or your children are being bullied, teased, or physically hurt at school because of your Sikh identity, please contact us immediately at email@example.com
