    SALDEF Recognizes Two More Awardees for their Service and Impact

    SALDEF is pleased to announce two additional awardees for the 2010 SALDEF National Gala to be held in Washington D.C. on October 16, 2010. We will be recognizing Mr. K.P. Singh with the Bhagat Singh Thind Community Empowerment Award and Ms. Saba Ahmed with the Public Service Award for their service and impact on the Sikh American community and beyond.

    K.P. Singh, Indianapolis
    Bhagat Singh Thind Community Empowerment Award

    The award recognizes members of the Sikh American community who embody the spirit of seva (selfless service). This year we honor Mr. KP Singh. An active member of the Indianapolis community since 1967, Mr. Singh is an accomplished advocate and supporter of historic preservation, cultural diversity, and the importance of arts to life and human spirit. Mr. Singh is a founding member of The International Center of Indianapolis and presently serves on many Boards including the Asian American Alliance, The Brooke's Place for Grieving Young Persons, The Butler University Center on Faith and Vocation, and Race and Cultural Relations Leadership Network. For his contributions, he recently received the Sarah Lewis Lifetime Achievement Award (United Way of Central Indiana - 2010). Mr. Singh is also an accomplished artist, writer and speaker.

    Saba Ahmed
    SALDEF Public Service Award

    The award recognizes the contributions and efforts made by an individual for the betterment of society through their direct leadership and efforts. This year we honor Ms. Saba Ahmed, a patent lawyer in Portland, Oregon for her pivotal role in the Oregon Right to Teach Campaign which overturned the ban on Sikh Americans and other individuals of faith who wear religious garb from teaching in Oregon public schools. The leadership she displayed by working with the interfaith coalition and lobbying legislators across the state, ensured the campaign's success and as a result, observant members of faiths no longer have to make the false choice between their profession and practicing their religion.

    Please join us in honoring these remarkable individuals through an evening of celebration, culture and achievement on October 16, 2010.
