    June 12, 2016, Washington, D.C.—The Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund (SALDEF) condemns the hateful attack on the lesbian, gay, bisexual,and transgender (LGBT) community in Orlando Florida. All Americans are integral to the fabric of our nation.


    While we mourn the victims of this tragedy, our hearts and prayers go out to all of those families who lost loved one's in last night's mass shootings. We believe no one should be targeted for his/her race, religion, beliefs or sexual orientation and we stand in solidarity with our LGBT brothers and sisters.

    Right now the Orlando, Florida community needs our support, strength, AND blood. SALDEF encourages Sikh Americans, especially the community in Florida, to donate blood today. You can find a center in your local community where you can volunteer to donate blood or call 1.888.936.6283.

    SALDEF extends it's gratitude to the Orlando Police Department, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Federal Bureau of Investigations, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for their swift response to this hateful event and risking their lives to save as many people as possible!

    Finally, we encourage the Sikh American community to continue to report any bias or hate incident to SALDEF.

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!
