Sikh Coalition Attends White House Celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage
(June 28, 2011) Washington, DC - Last week the Sikh Coalition, along with several Sikh leaders from across the country, attended a White House reception celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage. President Obama addressed the attendees and applauded the efforts of local grassroots leaders within the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.
Just prior to the reception, the White House Office of Public Engagement held an Asian American and Pacific Islander community leader briefing to which the Sikh Coalition was also invited. The purpose of this briefing was to get an update on policy areas impacting the AAPI community and to learn more about the White House Office of Public Engagement and the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
