January 10, 2022 (New York, NY) -- Do you have a passion for civil rights? The Sikh Coalition is currently hiring for two full time positions in our legal department: Staff Attorney
and Senior Staff Attorney
As the largest Sikh civil rights organization in the United States, the Sikh Coalition represents individuals (on a pro bono basis) who have been discriminated against or subject to bias based upon their religious beliefs or Sikh identity. Attorneys in both positions will provide direct legal assistance and advocate on behalf of Sikhs in high-impact litigation matters. Our areas of work include hate crimes, employment discrimination, bias-based school bullying, profiling, public accommodations, and other forms of religion-based discrimination.
Additionally, both attorneys will have the opportunity to work with a dynamic, professional, and experienced team that is viewed by law firms and other civil rights organizations as leading legal experts in areas of racial and religious discrimination. They will also work with major law firms, non-profit partners, government agencies, and law school clinics in a co-counseling capacity. Not only will they be responsible for representing and advocating on behalf of Sikh clients--they will also function as spokespeople who can translate that work effectively for policy changes and through local and national media.
