August 4, 2014 (New York, NY) – According to news reports
last week, Sandeep Singh—a Sikh father in New York City—was seriously injured when a driver in a pick-up truck ran him over on a public street in Queens, New York and dragged him for 30 feet. Only moments earlier, the driver had used racial slurs against Sandeep.
As the nation remembers the Oak Creek Gurdwara massacre two years ago, the Sikh Coalition is working with law enforcement officials to ensure that the attack on Sandeep is investigated as a hate crime and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
The Sikh American community of New York City is organizing a press conference
tomorrow morning (Tuesday, August 5, 2014) to demand justice for Sandeep Singh and to stand up against hate.
Sending Cards and Letters to Sandeep
As Sandeep recovers, the Sikh Coalition invites supporters around the world to express solidarity by sending letters and cards to him. You can email your messages to email@example.com
or mail them to the Sikh Coalition’s office at Sandeep Singh c/o The Sikh Coaltion, 50 Broad Street, Suite 1537, New York, NY 10004.
As always, the Sikh Coalition urges Sikhs everywhere to practice their faith fearlessly.
