  • Update – 33 Members of Congress Onboard; Can You Help Us Get to 50 Members?

    March 7, 2012 (Washington, DC) – The Sikh Coalition is pleased to announce that, as of today, 33 members of the U.S. Congress have signed a letter urging the Justice Department and FBI to track hate crimes against Sikhs. The letter was initiated by Representative Joe Crowley (NY) in collaboration with the Sikh Coalition. Your voices are being heard!

    Keep the momentum going and contact your elected representatives immediately. The Sikh Coalition's immediate goal is to have 50 Members of Congress calling on the FBI to track hate crimes against Sikhs as soon as possible!
