    Comcast-NBC is looking for videos of Sikhs in America: at gurdwaras, bowling, on a motorbike, volunteering

    WASHINGTON, DC: A casting call has been put out by the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund (SALDEF), which has partnered up with Comcast-NBC Universal for a series of Public Service Announcements (PSAs) intended to shed light on the lifestyle and culture of Sikhs in the US.

    Comcast-NBC Universal is the largest media company in the entire world, and the PSAs are meant to highlight Sikhism – its values, practices, and perhaps most importantly, the people who practice the religion.

    In a statement released by SALDEF, the organization said “When [Comcast-NBC Universal] approached SALDEF about producing and distributing a public service announcement for Sikh Americans—basically an ad for our community—we grew increasingly excited about the possibilities. As President Obama said during his first campaign for the White House, ‘Our destiny is not written for us, but by us.’”

    The organization is encouraging Sikhs of all ages to submit videos of them doing all kinds of things – dancing, playing sports, everyday tasks – and submit them for the PSAs. “We at SALDEF invite you submit video of you — home movies or cell phone video is fine — doing what you love. What you’re good at. What you value. Show yourself driving a motorcycle. Bowling with friends. Volunteering at gurdwara. Volunteering in the community. […] It can be ordinary, it might be personal, but it should be visually compelling, and help to show the many ways Sikh Americans are unique yet integrated in American life and culture.”

    According to information on its website, SALDEF is “ the oldest Sikh American civil rights and educational organization,” and works to “empower Sikh Americans through advocacy, education and media relations.”

    The deadline for video submissions is March 7, and all interested parties should submit their videos via the following links — http://tinyurl.com/k2gmcco.

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!
