  • Summer Series Playlist Now Available

    July 30, 2020 (New York, NY) -- The Sikh Coalition team would like to thank the thousands of community members--from kids and teens to young adults, parents, grandparents and everyone in between--who joined us for Summer Series last week! We are now excited to make the session recordings available as public resources for the community.

    With more than 35 virtual panels, workshops, and trainings addressing mental health, the arts, allyship, civil and human rights, women’s empowerment, and more plus activities for kids, we planned Summer Series in the hopes of bringing community members together to learn from each other, discuss important issues, and engage in fun activities.

    Today, we have a few final asks of you:

    1. Share your feedback with us: As we plan virtual programming for the rest of the year, we would love to hear your perspective as to what worked best and where we can improve our online engagement. Please click here to fill out a quick survey that will help us plan our future programming.
    2. Help build community power: The Sikh Coalition dedicated hundreds of hours of staff capacity over the last month to successfully execute the Summer Series program. If you enjoyed Summer Series, please consider donating and supporting the Sikh Coalition today. Your investment, large or small, enables us to continue to fight for progress through our advocacy, community development, education, legal, and media work in 2020 and beyond.
