And in the Sikh Center of Orange County in Santa Ana, California, attendees--including local law enforcement officials--were
featuring students from the Guru Nanak Children’s Academy and a delicious langar.
But these are just a few of the events that have taken place so far, supported by the Sikh Coalition’s community development, advocacy, and communications teams. This weekend, eight more sangats, from Connecticut to Missouri and Michigan to Washington State, will be hosting their own events.
“Working directly with sangats and watching them shape these events to the needs and interests of their local communities has been a wonderful experience,” said Rucha Kaur, Sikh Coalition Community Development Director. “We are striving to meet more and more Sikh Americans where they are, providing resources and strategic support as they build critical bridges within their communities.”
By December, we will have assisted more than 30 gurdwaras from coast to coast through the open house project. We look forward to sharing more stories from all of these sangats in the weeks to come, and we are grateful for all of the gurdwara leaders and volunteers who have made these events possible.
As always, the Sikh Coalition urges you to practice your faith fearlessly.
