Dear Supporter Ji,
I’m writing to update you on some exciting things happening in the Greater Seattle area and Bellingham. From February 28 to March 8, the Sikh Coalition--our nation’s largest Sikh civil rights organization--will be in Washington state to conduct several trainings and engagements for sangat members, and we invite you to join us!
Sikh Civic Engagement Seminar: Saturday, February 29, in the Greater Seattle area
This training is designed for community members to learn the skills necessary to take their community involvement to the next level. Attendees will discuss strategies to elevate the Sikh profile in their local community and strengthen interfaith partnerships. Additionally, they will learn how to present effective Sikh awareness resources to educators, law enforcement, community centers, lawmakers, and interfaith partners--including the specifics of how to pitch asks to government officials about the issues that matter to the local Sikh community.
