Sikhs from all over the world met on December 13, 2008 at the First Global Sikh Civil Rights Conference in New York for the launch of the First Global Sikh Civil Rights Report , and to adopt recommendations and declarations on crucial civil rights issues facing the Sikh community. On December 15, 2008, the community gathered at the United Nations Church Center to mark the filing of the Right to Turban cases by UNITED SIKHS challenging the laws in France banning ostensible religious symbols in schools and on photograph identification, and for a panel discussion by eminent human rights lawyers, multifaith advocates, and community leaders on “Defending the Right to Faith, Belief, and Dignity in the Post 9/11 World.”
