  • RESCHEDULED: Distributing Taxi and Rideshare Resources at JFK Airport on February 12

    February 4, 2022 (New York, NY) -- Due to inclement weather in New York City, the Sikh Coalition's planned distribution of taxi and rideshare driver resources--in partnership with city agencies and other community and civil rights organizations--will now take place on Saturday, February 12, 2022.

    Are you interested in joining us at JFK on Saturday, February 12 from 2:00 to 4:30 PM? You can still email community@sikhcoalition.org to RSVP! Most volunteers will meet at the Federal Circle AirTrain station and take shuttles to different taxi and rideshare areas of the airport for resource distribution; those who are driving can proceed directly to the West Cell Phone Lot.

    This community mobilization comes on the heels of the assault of a Sikh taxi driver at JFK airport, which is being charged as a hate crime, as well as a continued general increase in bias-motivated attacks across the city.

    Taxi and rideshare drivers from our communities are vulnerable to hate and discrimination given their interactions with the public; in the past several years, the Sikh Coalition has provided free legal aid to a number of Sikh drivers who have been violently attacked. We continue to proactively distribute resources in the hope of helping drivers to prevent hateful incidents or protect themselves when they do occur, and we are excited to partner with city agencies and other local organizations to reach individuals in need outside of our own community.

    Again, you can get more information or sign up to join us by emailing community@sikhcoalition.org. Let us know if you have any questions.

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