    Your Support can transform the outlook of future generation towards SIKHS
    For California Residents - Sign the petition to add Sikhism to school curriculum

    California, USA: UNITED SIKHS strongly urges all California community members to sign the petition and send letters of support to Governor Jerry Brown to sign the bill SB1540 which requires the California State Board of Education to consider the adoption of a revised the history-social science framework. The draft framework includes information about Sikhs in seven distinct areas. When completed, this will become an important tool which will be used in all California schools to increase awareness and knowledge about Sikhism and its followers. The bill has so far been unopposed and passed in the legislature. The only remaining action is for Governor Brown to sign the bill.
    In light of the recent tragedies and the concerns that the Sikh community has been facing since 9/11, it has become imperative to bring awareness. What better way to start with the very grass root level so that the future generations can embrace the beauty of diversification and co-existence in our country. How can you help?

    1. Sign the Petition online
    2. Print and mail letters to the Governor asking for his support. You can bulk mail after collecting signatures from your Gurdawaras or other gatherings. Dont forget to date, handwrite your name and address.
    3. Phone call- Please make follow up call after sending your letter. Number- 916-445-2841, Hours- M-F 9am to 5 pm.
    For any questions or concerns and to reach a UNITED SIKHS representative directly, please visit www.unitedsikhs.org/contact.php to find an office near you.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
