The Sikh Coalition is a nonprofit community-based organization that works towards the realization of civil and human rights for all people. The organization was launched in direct response to discrimination and backlash against Sikhs in America after 9/11. Since its inception, the Sikh Coalition has grown into the largest Sikh civil rights organization in the United States by delivering lasting and measurable results on behalf of Sikhs and non-Sikhs alike. Our policy advocacy has resulted in historic changes to the U.S. Army’s appearance regulations; an expansion of federal hate crime tracking; and the adoption of stronger equal employment protections for religious minorities in California, Oregon and New York City.
