The Time Is NOW - Act to Ensure Justice Prevails
 
Dear Supporter,
 
Now, more than ever, we have to fight for the civil and human rights of our people.
 
Since the November election, safety has become an increasing concern for many of our families. Our safety and religious preferences are basic human rights that we should not have to keep fighting for. However as the latest statistics show, hate crimes appear to be on the rise in America and many parts of the world. That is why the UNITED SIKHS continues it's mission.
 
We are fighting to protect our fellow citizens.
 
While we wait to see what the Trump administration brings, we must remember that everyday injustices and inequities we read and hear about affect real people and impact real lives; we cannot afford to be complacent. The coming years will be defining moments, and we're looking to you, our donors, for stronger support.
 
Below are key moments in 2016 when we (the UNITED SIKHS) stood in solidarity, fighting for the rights of our brothers and sisters, near and far.
 
 
       
SIKH Gurudwara Vandalized in Washington State. UNITED SIKHS springs into action Sikh Summit 2016. Bringing the voice of the Sikh community in the United States to Capitol Hill. American Sikh Community Offers Help and Stands in Solidarity With the Victims of the Orlando Shooting Rattan Deep Singh: "Within four days of taking up the matter, UNITED SIKHS delivered what they had assured me of. The CFA Institute reconsidered their decision and allow me to wear the kirpan during my exam on Saturday."
 
 
     
Dr Sardar Suran Singh, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Minister on Minority Affairs a UNITED SIKHS volunteer was shot dead by Taliban. UNITED SIKHS spun into action right after the blast in Belgium. People affected by the blasts outside the airport and metro station. UNITED SIKHS Meets Ambassador to Rebut France's Denial of Turban Ban.
 
 
 
We acknowledge and honor the people who have faced oppression and bigotry in our communities across the world. Tragically, in 2016 we lost some of our strongest advocates of human rIghts. We extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Dr. Suran Singh and all others who lost their lives while protecting our freedoms.
 
The fight for freedom, justice and equality isn't free.
 
    In addition to the initiatives above, we also offer various services within local communities:

  • Free Legal Clinic: UNITED SIKHS holds free legal clinics to address and assess the legal needs of the Sikh community in New York. The clinic aims to address civil rights issues about what to do when confronted by law enforcement.
  • The Advocacy and Humanitarian Aid Academy: Students are trained by speakers from the Department of Justice, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), and UNITED SIKHS staff to become vibrant members of society, and the community advocates of tomorrow.


The UNITED SIKHS has a strong legacy of leading the movement in protecting the civil liberties of minority groups. It is because of YOU that we are here and It is for you that we will keep fighting, and working towards a more just and equitable future for minorities of all faiths and ethnicities.
