  • Registration Now Open for Virtual CLE Conference on September 30, 2022

    July 6, 2022 (New York, NY) -- The Sikh Coalition is excited to host our annual virtual legal conference, Realizing Justice For All, on September 30, 2022.

    Hosted in partnership with law firms Winston & Strawn LLP and Weil, Gotshal, & Manges LLP, this conference offers an opportunity for lawyers and law students to gain CLE accreditation while learning about the core civil rights issues facing Sikhs and other minority groups in the United States. Legal professionals who attend the conference will acquire 3.0 CLE General or Elimination of Bias credits (depending on your state).

    Registration is now open: Click here to reserve your spot!

    This year, the conference will feature special guest speakers Janai Nelson (President and Director-Counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund) and Paul Grewal (Chief Legal Officer of Coinbase and retired ​​U.S. Federal Magistrate Judge). In addition, we look forward to recognizing the Stanford University Law School Religious Liberty Clinic as the recipient of the Pro Bono Sevadar of the Year award!

    We hope to see you at this year’s conference as we explore new topics in law and justice. The all-day conference will feature robust critical discussions by some of our nation’s leading experts on issues including:

    • From Palo Alto to Punjab: Free Speech in the Age of Disinformation and Holding Social Media Platforms Accountable; 
    • The Miseducation of CRT: What it Is and What it Isn’t; and
    • Past, Present, Future: The Battle For Voting Rights

    If you know an attorney or law student who should attend on September 30th, forward them this registration information.

    Registrants are encouraged to attend for the full day. Registration includes CLE certifications and is $100 for private attorneys, $50 for public interest and government attorneys, and free for current law students. Scholarships are provided on an individual basis, and sponsorship opportunities are still available--email our team at legalconference@sikhcoalition.org to learn more about both opportunities.

    As a reminder, last year’s conference featured conversations with leading attorneys and civil rights experts on topics including addressing issues of discrimination with an intersectional lens, understanding immigration challenges and representing clients seeking asylum, and whether the justice system adequately addresses bias crimes in a way that is in fact just.

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