    President Obama Recognizes Bandi Chhor Divas and Diwali

    (Washington, DC) November 3, 2011: Last week the Coalition along with guests from the Sikh community participated enthusiastically in a White House Diwali Reception [ http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/10/27/marking-diwali-white-house ] with President Barack Obama.
    The Coalition thanks the White House Office of Public Engagement [ http://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/ope ] and its Associate Director, Paul Monteiro, for organizing the reception and continuing to engage the Sikh community. The Coalition is particularly grateful that President Obama and the White House have continued to recognize the importance of Bandi Chhor Divas for the Sikh community during this time of year. The Coalition is also grateful that it's Program Director and current White House Commissioner, Amardeep Singh [ http://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/aapi/leadership/working-group/amardeep-singh ], was an official part of the program with the President.

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!
