  • Instagram Live on Bullying Prevention: What Can Parents Do

    October 19, 2021 (New York, NY) -- As part of the Sikh Coalition’s ongoing efforts to push for safe and inclusive classrooms, the Sikh Coalition will be hosting an Instagram Live to discuss Bullying Prevention on October 26 from 1:30 - 2:00 PM EST / 10:30 - 11:00 AM PST.  

    This Instagram Live will feature Sikh Coalition staff and Sikh parents with experience in public education and we hope to provide advice as to how parents can help their children if they are being bullied in school. In addition, we will share tips on how parents can use our back-to-school resources to work with educators and school administrations to promote Sikh awareness in curricula, classrooms and other school environments.

    “We are excited to speak with Simran Jeet Singh, who will moderate our discussion, and Sonia Kaur, a parent who has had experience using our resources to take action,” said Inderpreet Kaur, Sikh Coalition Community Development Manager. “We’ve solicited their expertise given that, over the past few weeks, the Sikh Coalition has received an unusual and alarming number of inquiries from parents whose children have been experiencing bullying in their classrooms.”

    Giselle Klapper, Sikh Coalition Senior Staff Attorney, will speak specifically about the legal aspects of working with bullying cases and how the Sikh Coalition’s legal team can assist parents. Additionally, Inderpreet Kaur will provide insight into how parents can approach school educators and administrative staff to promote Sikh awareness with Sikh Coalition’s lesson plans and educational resources. We are excited to have community members join to learn how they can make a difference at their local schools and ask our panelists questions.

    The Sikh Coalition has been working tirelessly to assist students, teachers, and parents as they have returned to school this fall, whether online or in-person. As part of our Vaccine ਵੀਰਵਾਰ initiative to share COVID-19 and vaccine updates, we spoke with Pediatric Infectious Disease and Subspecialist Dr. Jasjit Kaur and teacher Amrit Kaur to answer questions about back-to-school precautions and safety. Additionally, our Back to School toolkit includes everything from lesson plans to our Sikh Celebrations resource and from educational brochures to accommodation letters for articles of faith.

    As always, the Sikh Coalition urges you to practice your faith fearlessly.
