August 24, 2012 - In the final days of the California legislative session, you can take two simple actions that will have long-term educational benefits:
1. Sign a Petition asking the Governor to Sign SB1540 for Sikh Awareness
2. Write a Letter to the Governor 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.
By taking these 2 important actions, you can make a difference!
