  • Special COVID-19 Edition of AVAAZ

    Given the changing situation around the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to update you on what the Sikh Coalition is working on. Please click the video below for a special message from Sikh Coalition Executive Director Satjeet Kaur:

    Today, we are circulating all of our resources to help Sikh families and others who are affected by the evolving situation. All of this content can also be found online at www.sikhcoalition.org/covid19; please share that simple website with your family, friends, and others as widely as you can.
  • Social Distancing Guidelines for Gurdwaras

    “Social Distancing” is an epidemiological term that means taking simple steps to reduce close contact between people. Choosing to stay home now can keep you and others from getting sick! Learn more about how gurdwaras and individuals can implement social distancing and slow the spread of COVID-19.
  • Cyberbullying Resources

    With more and more children e-learning from home, parents need to be aware of the dangers of cyberbullying. Read about how to counter this risk on different social media networks and learn what steps to take if your child is subject to harassment online. Also, be sure to share this important graphic with key information.
  • Travel Restrictions

    In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, several countries are restricting movement within and across borders. The most recent developments include a high-level State Department advisory in the United States and, reportedly, a three-week curfew announced in India. Check this frequently-updated page to make sure you know the latest restrictions.
  • Federal Benefits and Relief

    On March 18, 2020, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act was passed and signed into law; learn more about how this bill will affect your family and place of business. Early next week, you can expect a summary of the second major piece of federal legislation, which was signed into law just yesterday afternoon.
  • State Benefits and Relief

    Each of the 50 U.S. states has different terms for their unemployment, Medicaid, and welfare programs. Be sure to review our constantly updated document cataloguing these resources on a state-by-state basis.
  • E-Learning Program Launch

    On Wednesday, March 25, we launched the Sikh Coalition Kid’s Corner, a weekly e-learning session. The first session featured Raakhee Mirchandani, author of Super Satya Saves the Day; you can watch a recording here. Next Wednesday, April 1, will feature Bhajneet Singh and his book Be Brave My Love; the session will once again be hosted on our Facebook page at 2:00 PM EDT / 1:00 PM CDT / 11:00 AM PDT.
  • Critical Information for Healthcare Professionals

    Different respirators and test fit requirements are raising questions in light of COVID-19. All Sikh healthcare professionals should reach out to their employers to secure a Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) or Controlled Air Purifying Respirator (CAPR) face mask. If you or someone you know has been asked to shave to wear an N95 mask, contact our legal team for immediate assistance.
  • Legal Help

    Some Asian Americans are facing increased harassment in the face of COVID-19. Moreover, the Sikh Coalition will continue working against all bias, bigotry, and backlash faced by Sikhs in the United States for any reason. If you face hate or discrimination, contact our legal team for immediate assistance.
