Dear Sadh Sangat Ji,
The SALDEF team will be visiting SFV Gurdwara on Sunday, May 21st (Regular Diwan) to discuss the day-to-day issues and challenges many of us are facing these days.
This covers many topics such as, school bullying, workplace discrimination, hate crimes, and information on rights while flying.
The overall purpose of this "Know Your Rights" presentation is to:
(1) ensure Sikh Americans understand their rights and protections against discrimination and bias as citizens and residents of the United States,
(2) introduce the Sikh American community members to agencies and groups that can address complaints, incidents, or issues they may have, and
(3) provide local, state, and federal governmental agencies the opportunity to build relationships with and address the specific needs of their local Sikh American community.
Participating agencies will include the FBI, County School Administration, TSA, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, US Attorney's Office, and Department of Justice Community Relations Service. You will also have the chance to ask questions about specific matters.
Please see the attached brochure and attend this event to benefit from this useful information.
For any further information, please contact our PRO, Kanwaljit K. Sachdeva.
