  • Justice and Recognition – A Message from the Sikh Coalition

    Dear Supporter,

    The time has come. Today, the Sikh Coalition is launching its end of year fundraising drive, and we need YOU to help us fight for civil rights in 2015 and beyond.

    Click here to make a tax-deductible donation today.

    Our goal is to raise ONE MILLION DOLLARS before the end of 2014. The Sikh Coalition is a no-nonsense advocacy organization that promotes Sikh rights and the rights of all people. With your support, we will continue to build out a professional Sikh American institution that will not only fight for your rights tomorrow, but for generations to come.

    Sikh Americans are contributing to national conversations
    In 2014, the Sikh Coalition’s work was featured in several national media outlets, including the New York Times, Houston Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, The Hill, TIME, and the Huffington Post.

    Sikh Americans are raising awareness in the U.S. Congress
    In 2014, the Sikh Coalition organized three Congressional briefings, secured 30 Congressional signatories in support of anti-bullying initiatives, and secured 120 Congressional signatories in support of Sikhs who wish to serve in the U.S. military while maintaining their articles of faith.

    Sikh Americans are correcting misconceptions about Sikhs
    In 2014, the Sikh Coalition trained over 1,000 New York police officers on Sikh awareness, partnered with community members on efforts to refine school curricula in Texas, and worked with three major textbook publishers to correct errors about Sikhs.

    Sikh Americans will not tolerate discrimination and hate crimes
    In 2014, the Sikh Coalition protected the rights of several Sikhs to practice their faith and partnered with community members in New York City to push back against hate crimes.

    Over the next ten weeks, we will send you additional emails highlighting more of our shared accomplishments in 2014, all of which were made possible by your generous support. Please read these emails. Get to know our work. Spread the word about what we do. With your support, the Sikh Coalition will continue to bring justice and recognition to the Sikh American community, and expand the rights of all people, as required by Sikh tradition, regardless of who they are.

    Chardi Kala,

    Sapreet Kaur | Executive Director
