June 27, 2012 (Fremont, California) – AB1964, the Workplace Religious Freedom Act, cleared the Judiciary Committee yesterday in the California Senate. The bill will move to the Senate Appropriations Committee in the coming weeks. If enacted into law, AB1964 will sharply reduce job discrimination against Sikhs and other religious minorities in California.
The Sikh Coalition is grateful to the California Sikh community for a strong turnout at the hearing. If you live in California or have friends there, please sign and share our automatic petition in support of AB1964. This historic legislation cannot move forward without strong community support.
