Data Collection Promotes Accountability
All people deserve to live in a world without hate and discrimination. The Sikh Coalition is committed to fighting hate crime and profiling. Our goal is to create a social climate in which Sikh Americans can live with dignity without being targeted for violence or discrimination.
The Sikh Coalition has consistently led efforts to strengthen data collection to track hate crimes and TSA profiling. Numbers don't lie. When Sikh Americans are targeted because of their appearance, we will not allow policymakers to plead ignorance and evade accountability.
"We can't bring back our loved ones, like my mother, whom we have lost to hate. But we can demand laws to better protect us."
