December 6, 2019 (Washington, DC) – Yesterday afternoon, Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher (D-TX) and the rest of the bipartisan Houston congressional delegation introduced legislation to honor Deputy Dhaliwal’s memory by renaming a Houston post office in his honor.
Tell the Houston congressional delegation ‘thank you’ for introducing this bipartisan legislation.
"The support and kindness we have received from the Houston community and people around the country has been both inspiring and comforting in this difficult time," said Pyara Singh Dhaliwal, father of Deputy Dhaliwal. "My family is grateful to Congresswoman Fletcher for her work to recognize my son's legacy and his love for the people of this city. We urge everyone, Sikh or not, to remember Sandeep by following his example of seva and committing to doing good for those around you wherever you live."
You can take action now: Fill out this form to send a thank you note to every office in the Houston congressional delegation for supporting this legislation.
When you’re done, be sure to forward this email to your family and friends so they can show their appreciation as well.
“Deputy Dhaliwal represented the very best of our community: he worked for equality, connection, and community through his life of service to others,” said Congresswoman Fletcher. “The Deputy Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal Post Office will serve as a permanent reminder of his service, his sacrifice, and his example for us all. I am honored to be able to recognize Deputy Dhaliwal in this way, and look forward to working with all of my Texas colleagues to pass this legislation quickly.”
The Sikh Coalition supported Congresswoman Fletcher in drafting this legislation and endorses its hopeful passage. Previously, we mobilized hundreds of sangat members nationwide to support the Houston delegation’s other resolution to honor Deputy Dhaliwal
. We have also worked to commemorate the deputy's legacy by helping 98 Sikh American first responders and military professionals
request uniform accommodation policy changes throughout the nation. We also supported sangats in their individual memorial efforts.
As always, the Sikh Coalition urges you to practice your faith fearlessly.
