For the fifth consecutive year, the Sikh Coalition calls on Californians to engage this November in Sikh Awareness and Appreciation Month. On November 9 Assemblymember Jim Cooper is scheduled to hold an official ceremony introducing his member resolution for this California state initiative. In the interim lawmakers and other government officials are already organizing events promoting Sikh awareness and appreciation. The Sikh Coalition, in collaboration with the California Sikh community, has worked to create a list of projects that you can lead in your city to celebrate Sikh Awareness and Appreciation Month.
