California Sikh Awareness Month
California Assembly Member Ash Kalra has introduced a resolution in the California legislature designating November 2017 as California Sikh American Awareness and Appreciation Month. The resolution recognizes “the significant contributions that Californians of Sikh heritage have made to the state.” The Sikh Coalition, in collaboration with the California Sikh community, has worked to create a list of projects that you can lead to celebrate Sikh Awareness and Appreciation Month.Click here to learn more
Secure your Gurdwara
In response to concerns about increasing hate crime risk against Sikhs in the United States, the Sikh Coalition is making Gurdwara security awareness a top priority in 2017. Federal and state government agencies have developed many free resources and trainings to help places of worship, including Gurdwaras, minimize the risk of attacks.
Check out our resource guide and get in touch with our team to facilitate a free Gurdwara Security Training for your local sangat.Learn more & download the resource guide
Report Hate Using Our Online Tool
The Sikh Coalition has received a sharp uptick in complaints alleging intimidation, harassment, discrimination and hate violence against Sikh Americans. We developed this reporting form to make it easier for Sikhs to report these incidents, even if it they are not legally actionable or a crime (e.g., someone uses a racial slur on the street). This form is also open to non-Sikhs from all backgrounds based in the United States.
All personal information reported through this form will be kept strictly confidential. If you require legal assistance and need a response from our legal team, please complete a legal intake form.Report Hate Request Legal Assistance
