Dear Supporter,

Please note the following correction to the email I just sent moments ago:

The RSVP deadline is Wednesday May 16, 2012 at 9am EST.  

Sincere apologies for any confusion.

We are pleased to invite you to an exclusive, non-transferable, invitation-only, Policy Briefing at the White House on Friday, June 8th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The Policy Briefing at the White House shall be focused on issues of unique interest to the Sikh community, including many of the core issues the Sikh Coalition traditionally addresses.  The briefing will be conducted by White House and Executive Agency officials. To our knowledge, this is the first time the White House has offered to hold a briefing for Sikhs on uniquely Sikh concerns.

By way of background, the briefing is a part of the Sikh Coalition’s Sikh Advocate Academy. You will have the opportunity to also meet Sikh Coalition-trained Advocates on June 8th as well as our staff team. Accordingly, we have organized a day-long celebration of Sikh Activism on Friday, June 8th in Washington, DC. As a critical member of the Sikh Coalition team we would love for you to join us.

Finally, there is a possibility that a tour of the East Wing of the White House will follow the briefing. We are in the midst of confirming whether a tour will follow the briefing and will let you know by late next week.

If you would like to attend the briefing, in order to meet White House Security protocols, you must email ava@sikhcoalition.org the following information by Wednesday May 16, 2012 at 9am EST:

Your legal first, middle and last name: __________
Date of birth: ______
Social security number: _______
Whether you are a citizen of the US. If you are not then please provide the name of the country for which you are a citizen & passport number: _____
Gender: _______
City: _______
State: _______

We understand that this information is highly confidential.  Please understand that we will keep this information in a secure place and will only be sharing it with the White House.  If you are uncomfortable sending this information via email, please call Ava at 212-655-3095 x 82.

As always please reach out to me directly with any questions or concerns.  We look forward to seeing you on the 8th!

Chardi Kala,


Sapreet Kaur
Executive Director
