May 30, 2012 (Fremont, California) – By a vote of 59 to 3, the California Assembly yesterday passed the Workplace Religious Freedom Act (AB1964). The bill now moves to the California Senate for consideration. If this bill becomes law, it will sharply reduce job discrimination against Sikhs and other religious minorities in California.
