    Los Angeles, CA: Rev. Jesse Jackson from the Rainbow PUSH Coalition recognized United Sikhs with a Humanitarian Award for its remarkable work in the field of Advocacy and Humanitari-an Aid. The event marked the birthday celebration for Jesse Jackson at Ritz Carlton here on October 21. The event was attended by over 300 community members. Harpreet Singh and Dr. Seema Kaur from United Sikhs received the award from Rev. Jackson, who commended United Sikhs for its humanitarian work around the world. He specifically mentioned the excellent work done by United Sikhs’ disaster response team on the ground in Wisconsin following the tragedy as they provided one-on-one disaster distress relief service to the victims.

    “We really appreciate all the support that Rev. Jackson had shown towards the Sikh community, by not only joining them in person in Wisconsin but also meeting our disaster counselors on the ground and giving them moral and emotional support as they worked hard to fulfill the needs of Oak Creek community,” said Dr. Seema Kaur, regional director of United Sikhs.

    The directors spoke about the similarities between the two organizations — United Sikhs and Rainbow PUSH Coalition — especially the focus on humanitarian work and social justice. Rev. Jackson showed his receptiveness towards a joint effort between the two organizations to help both communities to develop further resources for minority populations.

    Harpreet Singh, regional director of United Sikhs, said: “The way I see, the Reverend’s work is like a tree. You sow the seed and allow the tree to bear the fruit. Right now you can see the fruit. Our tree today stands on empowering people through its three branches —advocacy and civil rights; humanitarian aid; and Education. This will bring in fruits for generations to come, fulfilling needs of all communities and hence more equity into the American society.”
