Dear Supporter Ji,
Your support has enabled the Sikh Coalition’s progress on behalf of the community over the last 15 years.
Thank you! Together, we have been able to create change and lasting impact. This year alone, our work included ensuring Sikhism is taught correctly in California schools, advocating for appropriate charges in instances of hate, making significant progress towards ending the presumptive ban on Sikh service in the US military and reaching millions through our educational initiatives. Our Sikh Project photo exhibition, Daily Show Sikh segment and CBS Evening News segment all educated the broader American public about Sikhism and Sikh civil rights.
Today, we ask you to stand with us again. We are launching our end of year fundraising drive, and we need YOU to help us fight for civil rights in 2017 and beyond.
We must raise $1.1 million dollars before the end of 2016 to jumpstart the next 15 years of impact.
This is the baseline needed to continue this work that we do on behalf of the community. This work requires long-term investment. Without your support, we cannot continue to provide legal help to over 200 Sikhs a year. Without your support, we cannot win multi-year legal cases against companies like Disney, Lexus and others. Without your support, we cannot change state standards to include Sikhi like we have in New Jersey, New York, Texas and now California.
We can not do this work without you.
In order for us to collectively succeed, we need to individually contribute. Together, we will continue to create lasting impact. Together, we will continue our fight not just for our rights today, but for generations to come.
The Sikh Coalition Team
