An Interdisciplinary Approach

All children deserve a safe and healthy learning environment. The Sikh Coalition is leading efforts to promote Sikh awareness and prevent bullying in our nation’s public schools. Our goal is to build resilience and pride among Sikh American youth.

Sikh students experience high rates of bullying. In addition, school curricula and textbooks contain inaccurate information about Sikhs. The Sikh Coalition is partnering with policymakers, school officials, and textbook companies to systematically address these interlocking issues.

"My brother spoke out and with the support of the Sikh Coalition, we refused to let the DeKalb County school district ignore the problem of bias-based bullying. Now we're at the White House working to ensure that the rest of the country addresses the problem too."
