Two weeks ago, we lost a trailblazing hero. Now, you can call on your member of Congress to honor the late Deputy Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal through a bipartisan congressional resolution.

On Friday, September 27, 2019, Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Dhaliwal was shot and killed at a traffic stop in northwest Houston, Texas. Deputy Dhaliwal had served in the Harris County Sheriff’s Office since 2009; in 2015, he became the first officer in the department–and the state of Texas–to serve with his Sikh articles of faith.

In the days and weeks since, Sikhs and others across the nation have joined the Houston sangat in honoring Deputy Dhaliwal and supporting his family and friends through this trying time. The bipartisan delegation of members of Congress from Houston, led by Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher, introduced H. Res. 616 to honor Deputy Dhaliwal and his legacy of seva, or selfless service to the community.

A congressional resolution will honor Deputy Dhaliwal at one of the highest levels in our federal government. We want to make sure that Congress hears Sikh voices from across the nation loud and clear. Together, we can work to ensure that all of our members of Congress recognize and honor Deputy Dhaliwal’s legacy.
