features even more lesson plans, teaching tools, and the first-ever C3 Resources on Sikhism
for educators to effectively teach students about this topic through inquiry.
The Sikh Coalition is excited to join the California sangat in celebrating the contributions and accomplishments of Sikhs across the state as we work together to raise Sikh awareness. If you have questions about California SAAM, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, the Sikh Coalition urges you to practice your faith fearlessly.
